Black Tusk Viewpoint (2010.9.17)

(IB GEO FIELDTRIP) We all knew we would have a long hike on Black Tusk Trail in a field trip at the beginning of IB Geography. One year later, this day finally came. We got a cloudy day at the beginning, but the sun finally came out near Black Tusk Meadows. Seriously this was my third time hiking the 9km trail to Garibaldi Lake from Rubble Creek Parking Lot.
Since all geography students had to do this hike, we did it in a very slow pace. So in order to get far, we had to wake up at 5am in the morning, and arrive at the parking lot before 8am. Even though, we still didn’t reach the base of the Tusk, in stead we only made to the Black Tusk Viewpoint, the end of the official trail. (The rest part belongs to scrambling). Due to the short daylight time, we didn’t go to the lake shore on the way down. BAD BAD... it would only take 15 minute...
