Luckily, we've had a bit of that this summer, under especially clear and visibility unlimited skies. Another best feeling in life is to look up at the sky when there is no moon and you don't have to freeze your butt off!
Two nights of a stellar milky way and the aurora glow backlighting the mountains looking north is enough to make me smile. I think if we sent all the world leaders up into the space station maybe then we'd get some effort on protecting this very special planet we live on.
Maybe they just don't realize what we have...
The area is also the headwaters of the Shushawp River which is pretty cool since all the water goes into the lake that provides summer swimming enjoyment for thousands of Albertans and Shushawp residents. This is a place kept secret apparently, but just as scenic as Revelstoke without the park fee (and several clearcuts in the valley bottom at various stages of regeneration). Plus you could sleep in the lookout for free!
mountain bikers had found it though and they made it to the top evidenced by their registration in the lookout notebook. I doubt I'd ever mtn bike it as hiking was good enough for me, but Mark would consider it I'm sure. It's not like anyone banning riding mtn bikes on crown lands, and luckily it's a little too rugged to ride in on an ATV to prevent that ATV-kind-of-mtn-meadow damage. But in the wintertime a smart snowmachine rider could easily find their way up there - and it looked like several parties did last winter. Just hope everyone packs their trash out.
