Joffre Lakes hike - september 2008

CJ & I drove out past Pemberton and Mt.Currie reservation to visit the Joffre Lakes Provincial Park. The hike encompasses 3 lakes, ending up at the Joffre Glacier, and takes about 5 hours round trip.

The weather forcast looked good, but when we got there it had rained, turning the path into a mudbath - me in trainers. Doh!
