Mount Bishop - Vicar Lake Trail, May 2020
A fine May 10 trip up Mount Bishop via LSCR and Vicar Lakes Trail. About 22 km on bikes and another 10 km on foot up and down the steepest, scramble-e-est approach imaginable. Countless rope-assisted sections, a pleasant grove of ~800 yr old giant cedars and an easy albeit sweaty slog up from Vicar Lakes. Continuous snow started just below the lakes but going fast. Markers on trees from here guide the way up to the alpine. Kicked steps in snow up to the saddle and completed the remaining slog to the summit. Outstanding views overlooking Indian Arm, Seymour Lake, and watershed area and of course Greater Vancouver to the south. Another great Spring outing in the so-called Fannin Range!
