The Sun, the Shade

Raft Peak Trail
Clearwater, BC
approx. 3 hours return

The drive here is an adventure in itself. The hike is very steep through meadows filled with ground squirrels, but the trail is not long. At the rim, you can wander where you like. Watch out, though, because some parts of the trail have slipped off the rim. It's a long ride to the bottom! All day long the sun shines full on this naked mountain. Be sure to take some water. If you have a lot of long shaggy fur, you may want to wait until fall to hike this trail. At the summit, I found a nice cool piece of shade underneath an overhaning rock.
