Hike to Garibaldi Lake, British Columbia Canada

Yesterday i had the privilege of hiking up through Garibaldi Provincial Park, which is located in Squamish British Columbia, Canada up to Garibaldi Lake about 19km round trip, along with my geography class. Along with me I had my Parkzone radian and my GoPro Hero HD in my backpack the whole hike up and down. We started out at 7:30am and made it up by 11:30am with breaks in between; stayed for roughly an hour and started to head back down at 12:30pm and made it to the parking lot at 3:00. Every one was tired and had sore foots but the lake was really worth it. I got in only 2 flights with my radian because of the high winds, i didnt want to risk loosing it. I took about 300 photos 80% of them came out great and the view from above was stunning.

Heres some of the photos of the lake, but you can check out the rest at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tuandin...7624854485971/



















Thanks, Enjoy.

Dang....I never had fun field trips like that. We usually ended up at the zoo. When I got older we didn't get field trips.....that was in the good old days of lecture/memorize/spit back on a test.

It was grueling walking up that mountain with my gear on my back. We generally get better more harder field trips as we get older cause of the skill and endurance needed

If you don't mind my asking, where did you land in a place like that? Did you just catch the Radian? Floats? Fantastic photos!

I caught it, the camera is mounted 8 inches from the bottom so catching is the only option

Wow 8 inches. You have a folding prop so perhaps you mounted it that low to avoid having any part of the fuse in the pictures? My hat is off to you for pulling this off. Now I appreciate these pics even more.
