Start: Saturday, Oct. 8th
End: Sunday, Oct. 9th, 11:40 am

This will be a car-camping trip with two longish (~20-25k) day hikes of ~1000m vertical gain.

We will drive in on Saturday, camp at the Lightening lakes Provincial Park's campsite, and climb the highest peak in Manning - Mount Frosty (2408m). There is a stunning world class event on the ascent called "Larches are turning yellow". On Sunday we'll hike East Skyline trail and hopefully knock off two peaks on the way: Snow Camp and Lone Goat, and then will drive back to Vancouver. The trip isn't technical, but does involve a bit of quasi scrambling around Frosty, and some snow travel, for which I would recommend bringing an ice axe, and knowing how to use it. Days are getting short so a headlamp is mandatory. As is some sort of rain gear.
