Egypt Lake 2001 photos

by site editor Rick McCharles

The Lakes and Larches hike to Egypt Lake in the Canadian Rockies out of Banff was fantastic.

In bright sunshine, one day temperatures approached 30 degrees Celsius!

Most of these photos are close-ups as those tend to turn out best from (the fairly low resolution) camcorder. I included some of the amazing wild flowers and many of the animals we saw.

The hat has a disgusting collection of flies stuck to it — a failed gear innovation..

The deer is a surprising illusion — it’s made of deadfall and underbrush.
