Just found out this may be my last free weekend for a while, so let's day trip!

This trip is completely public transit accessible. The plan is to meet downtown Vancouver around 7:20am, then take the 257 bus to Horseshoe Bay.

We can catch the 9:05am ferry, and from there it's about a 20 minute ferry ride to Bowen Island. Looks to be about a 5 hour hike roundtrip up Mt. Gardner, with 719m elevation. You can bring food to share at the top if you feel so inclined. We could even grab some brews at the pub by the ferry terminal afterwards. c:

Due to the last minute nature of this trip, there will be no pretrip meeting. But I'll send out an email, and sign up people as going on Friday. Message me if you have any questions!
