Sunday’s hike: Roger and I co-lead this hike. And again, we had a glorious sunny hike with 13 Hikers. The hike started at the top of Whistler gondola (lift ticket is $58). From the alpine, you go directly east for four hours hiking the Musical bumps ( piccolo, flute and oboe passes), Singing pass and up to Russet Lake. The return trip follows the Fitzsimmons Creek ( 11.5 km) back to Whistler village. The entire loop is 27 km ( as calculated by Cristina). My feet were very sore as I wore stiff hiking boots. Best to do with trail runners if there is no snow or ice. September/early October are the best months to hike as there are no mosquitoes, plenty of huckleberries to eat, lovely alpine flowers and before the first snowfall. Everyone had a glorious time. Roger lead the fast group and I stayed with the slower group, saviouring the majestic beauty- “smelling the roses”.

Wow, amazing photos Bengul. Thanks for documenting our trip. Now that the snow has arrived in Whistler, my next trip will be a snowshoe for sure. I will post something when the weather gets better. See you all soon, YeOctober 22, 2017 at 5:52 pm #7603S. Ling ChanMember
