Skyline 1 Trail Partway (2009.8.8)

My mom needed to practice long distance driving, so we decided to go hiking in this weekends. It was rainy all the way from Fraser Valley, Northshore Mountains, to Sea to Sky Country, so the only choice was to hike in Manning Park, located relatively further from the orographic side of Coast Mountains. Lightning Lake is the most attractive tourism site in the park, located 3 hours drive from home. There are lots of trails starting from Lightning Lake, and we chose to hike Skyline 1 Trail. Since the weather was overcast, we only made to the first high point and then turned back. We decided to leave the rest of the trail for another day in the future, in a sunny day of course.
