Crew,-Bor-Gl-Lucy-Lk.

A long and curious trip with a crazy Kootenay crew.

Descending the Lucifer glacier shown above.

The trip starts with a drive up into the back end of Hoder creek to the Drinnon pass parking lot on the Boundary of Valhalla Provincial Park. Over the next 4 days the route crosses two small glaciers, 4 mountain passes, 2 nights at a mac’in lodge, crosses 9 alpine lakes plus Slocan lake and finish’s with a casual float down the Slocan river covering over 55km.
