Bourgeau Lake approaching Harvey Pass
The Bourgeau Lake hike is rather ordinary up to the lake. Take a break, have your lunch and fend off obese and agressive squirrels. Then get ready for a nice climb up to Harvey Pass. The weather was not ideal on this day - periods of sustained rain and lots of cloud - this patch of blue came and went rather quickly. The climb up to the pass leads to better and better views including transforming the stormy Bourgeau Lake into a green glacial beauty. On a clear day, I am told you can see across to Mount Assiniboine. This was not a clear day!
