Trip Report

We had a leisurely arrival at Joffre Lakes Provincial parking lot around noon on Saturday just to find out that it is a horror show of cars lined up for parking. RV backing up the parking lot, we squeezed in and  luckily found someone leaving a spot for Paul's SUV. Parked and ready to go, the trail was packed with day hikers. It was busy. We camped at the 3rd lake up near the waterfall. In the afternoon, the temps were quite warm. We checked the snow conditions up the gully. They were surprisingly good. No post-holing involved. A bit of a slushy layer but very supportive. We had an early alpine start at 1:30 am thinking the snow might get harder at night. It did not, but was still good. Arriving at the Stonecrop glacier, we saw a slide path starting from the summit. Boulder sized rocks littered the Stonecrop glacier. Arriving near the summit, we found a hole where the source of the rock debris came from. We summited at 6 am and had a leisurely half hour break to soak in the view. Came back down in two and a half hours. Arrived at the lake and saw floating unicorns on the lake. At first I thought alpine fatigue has gotten into me. Sure enough, there were floating unicorn mattresses on the lake. A group of people managed to haul that up on the 3rd lake. Impressive.

In all, we had a blast.

The weather forecast was originally for rain, so we expected to be making more use of the hut, but by the time the long weekend arrived, it was sunny and warm with just a little snow on the ground.
