Grouse Mountain

Went to Grouse Mountain for Christmas day – few things I learned as first time visitor

  • Don’t have to worry about mountain driving – Cable car will bring you up to near peak of the mountain but this means a backlog on return down.
  • Due to the height things are totally different up at there although it is extremely close to the city – nice snow up at there
  • You gotta ride till the sunset at least + night ski give you the scenic view

Vancouver에서는 Cypress만 세번 갔었는데 이번엔 Grouse – 도시에서 가까운 훌륭한 스키장.. 기대이상으로 좋았던 설질과 죽이는 경치를 보고 스키를 탔다. 실력은 황이어도 주위 가까운곳에 환경이 좋아서 겨울 스포츠 호강은 계속되는구나..

Glacier National Park: Grinnell Lake Hike

Halo country V2 – Hike to Grinnell Lake – crossing 2 lakes & hikes to watch glacier and beautiful lake. The most easy and fun hiking, at the same time, the most irritating hike because of boat schedules and waiting line cutoffs from shxxy folks (yes I am talking about a fat man and his family with Tottenham Hotspur’s hat – wondered what they taught their kids with this classy behavior..)

제일 아름답고 쉬웠지만 한편 보트 일정 및 대놓고 새치기하는 인간들 때문에 개짜증도 났던 하이킹… 수준 이하의 저질 인간들은 어딜가도 꼭 있다.. 애들 보는 앞에서 대놓고 새치기하니 좋던?

Glacier National Park: Many Glacier

운좋게 이 동네 숙소만 하루가 가능했고, 어차피 여기가 꼭 가봐야하는 곳인데다가, 주도로인 Going To The Sun Road 선상에 없고 동쪽에서만 들어갈수 있다고 해서 잘됬다 생각하고 찾아들어갔다.. 대만족.. 허나 가는 길은 아주 개판 5분전..뭔길에 아스팔트길에 빵꾸가 많은지…ㅎㅎ 나름 피해다닌다고 시도는 했지만 몇번은 차 박살나는줄 알고 엄청 걱정..ㅎㅎ

태양으로 가는 길을 나와 밥이란 동네를 지나고.. ㅎㅎ 많이 빙하촌을 찾아갔다.. ㅎㅎㅎ Wifi도 없고 전화도 안되고 TV도 안나오는 숙소라 푹 잘 쉬었다..ㅎ

Among National Park Services’ descriptions on this area of the park, two statements caught my eyes after visiting here…:)

  • Many people consider this area the heart of the park. Massive mountains, active glaciers, sparkling lakes, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife make this a favorite of visitors and locals alike.
  • The access road into the valley is rough and potholes abound. If you are driving a vehicle with low clearance use extra caution.

Both are 1000% true. 🙂 Getting here from entrance with car was a fun ‘drift’ of escaping potholes but it was a paradise and worth of having a night at here. Felt so lucky to get the last available cabin at here… 🙂
