After only 2 months of living in Whistler, I finally found a chance to get out and explore the surrounding mountains. The Cheakamus Lake Hike near Whistler is hands down one of the best "bang for buck" hikes around. A short 1.5KM walk up to the lake through a very cool old growth forest gets you to an unbelievably scenic lake set in the Coast Mountains. 

Here are 5 of my favorite shots from the hike. Check out more photos from my adventures on my website!

Our first view of the lake. Rare to see such a large mountain lake dead calm as it was yesterday

There were some magical things happening in the woods yesterday. I'm glad we braved the rain to head out and see it for ourselves

Stunning Lake
Cheakamus Lake was putting on an amazing show yesterday. Get out there and check it out for yourself!
