Continuing the theme of reviving photos from the archives, this week's post features another trek into the mountains with Danielle and this time, both her parents. In June of 2016 we tackled a trail up to the alpine actually fairly close to our home in the Cowichan Valley which Danielle and I had never done before, but her parents had.
A fairly short and moderately challenging hike took us up to the alpine Lomas Lake where we spent two nights camped below the mountains of Landale and El Capitan. For the majority of the time we spent camped at the lake, we were alone, and were able to spend the time relaxing beside the fire in the woods and on the lake shore. Although we did get quite wet due to the moisture in the air and on the vegetation, we all thoroughly enjoyed our time and were able to summit one of the two mountains.
The most incredible part about Lomas Lake is not the stunning views but the accessibility from our homes in the Cowichan Valley. Being so close, it's a wonder this was only my first time visiting the beautiful spot. I very much wanted to visit the lake again this last summer but was unable to find the time. It's a goal of mine to hike to the lake again Summer 2018.
The following photos were some of the very first taken when I got my Sony A7RII and I only just edited the great majority of them Nov., 2017. It's interesting to look back on my past photos such as these. I hope you enjoy.
