Steve Hailstone lead a group of 9 other NS Hikers up, up, and up 950 m. to the top of Evans Peak, in Maple Ridge. We had stunning views of Blanchard, Edge and all the others, but no Golden Ears.
It was a terrific hike with dangerous cliffs; steep rock faces with roots to hold onto, and great people. What more can you ask from a Tuesday?
