Lake O’Hara

A couple days after my b’day we set out on our first official backcountry trip. Lake O’Hara is about 3 hrs drive from Jasper in the direction of Lake Louise. You can only drive so far, the rest you have to go on foot. It was about a 12km hike along a dirt road and then a couple kms through some pretty deep snow…..well not deep all the time. You’d be casually walking along the snow and then you’d suddenly disappear up to your waist. After about 3.5hrs we reached our little hut in the middle of nowhere. Usually in the summer there are loads of amazing day hikes you can do from here but due to the massive amount of snow still up there, we were more or less limited to exploring pretty close to the cabin. That didn’t seem to phase anyone and we had an awesome few days of fun in the mountains!
