    Thank you Donna for leading us (6 in total) on this spectacular hike with incredible viewpoints at snack and lunch breaks. The trailhead is at Eagle Mountain drive and we started at Dentist Trail. After 90 minutes+ hard work, we climbed up to the end of Full Pull trail, Seymour 3 peaks appearing intermittently on our right, Simon Fraser standing with high rise buildings atop Burnaby Mountain right in front of us and City of Vancouver outlining to the left.   To add the fun and entertainment, we met two BC Search and Rescue trainers setting up a plane crash exercise.  We witnessed the crash site, the plane wreckage and the “black box”.  We would like to stay to participate in the exercise but got the hints that it is too complicated to have extra 6 hikers for rescue.  On the way down, we could hear the trainee planes flying over the forest and wonder if they could spot us amongst the trees.

    Our lunch break was by the power line with view of Buntzen lake below. It was a beautiful day with warm sunshine to enjoy. We had a long relaxing lunch watching more trainee planes flying back and forth.  To end the hike, we were treated with a view of Mount Baker rising above the clouds.

    Donna, thank you again pulling this hike together and hope this will become a regular.

    Also, many thanks to the fellow hikers, Bengul, Pam, Weijia, Brigette (guest) who came out and shared this hiking experience.  And the link to Bengul’s photo album:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/benrose
