plan was to hike right up to black tusk but when i read the snow report i read it as 2 feet of snow and not 2 metres, which is a significant difference when you’re wearing a pair of trainers and spending the night there. had to employ the old carrier bag trick for day 2.
this is the barrier, a lava dam below garibaldi lake. should the unstable rock collapse it would release the lakes above which would potentially destroy squamish and other downstream villages. wikipedia told me this.
camped below black tusk at taylor meadows. not much sign of meadow-ness but a good view of the tusk. this being the longest day of the year it seemed to stay light out late into the night.
can’t say i was too thrilled by this crossing. ice on wet wood? may as well cover that walkway in banana skins.
garibaldi lake, still ice covered except for this small patch. the approach to the lake felt very much like cougar country, especially as we were following a trail of cat-like imprints for a good stretch of it.
here’s a short timelapse, the first i’ve ever done, which as well as showing how quickly the weather can change over on the north shore, also shows how dirty my lenses are.
vancouver surprises me very often. jericho beach in december has a distinctly british, out of season resort feel to it. choppy seas, wind rattling through boat masts, dog walkers in big jackets. what you don’t get, or i’ve never seen, with british beaches is mountains surrounding you on all sides, ski slopes, supertankers and a view of the metropolis two miles away.
reflecting the sun, a silent beast. i said to jen that when you look at these ships that sit for weeks, waiting for their spot loading or unloading, it’s like they’re dead. you can’t see any life on them, the lights come on later on but you don’t see life. i find them eerie.
this is ‘pos dignity‘, a 76000 ton cargo ship from hong kong which has been here for at least the last 5 days.
first outing with contour helmet camera. i particularly love how windows movie maker has made a perfectly good piece of video really contrasty towards the corners.
oh and that bit where i make a weird noise after the first corner is the chain jumping off and getting stuck behind the front chainring.
here’s a view i won’t be seeing too much in the near future, as we just booked flights out of scarborough indefinitely. taken from oliver’s mount, the site of a large war memorial standing above the town and also a dangerous motorbike race track.
