Had to ask several people where the trail started.  A huge national frisbee-golf tourney was on so the place was packed.  Extreme elevation to start but then a gradual incline.  Mountain Jays kept following us.  Busy trail at times, but not too bad.  Took a cool turnoff for a lunch spot at a lake but it had a large group already there.  Hard to find a quiet spot.  Ran in to an injured camper hiking out with a badly sprained ankle, so we taped him up (good thing we carry a good medical emergency supply).Rock blasting near the top, so couldn't finish unless we took a side trip on the main road.  There was a cave we could have explored (gold mine shaft) but we had picked up a lost dog and were taking him back down to his owner.  Not one we would go out of ourway to do again

Great morning, lots of smoke from BC fires. Lots of bugs, bring mosquito repellent next time.
