I crossed off another thing on my bucket list!
My roommate Joanna and I hiked to Tolmie Peak via Eunice Lake on the Wonderland Trail. It was a cool, mostly misty, foggy day and the clouds hugged the lakes and peaks with cool intimacy.
The trail was 5.9 miles to the peak and Eunice lake was just below it. The trail itself is well developed, albeit not flat enough for my liking (lots of steep inclines and declines which isn’t too great on the knees). But it was perfect hiking weather and I was in love with the misty feel on the green terrain.
Just around Eunice Lake, the area opened a bit into meadow-like surroundings. Mountain flowers I’ve never seen before were in full bloom. Ones that looked like little dancing ballerinas, little floating hearts………..thousands and thousands of perky glacier lilies carpeted the ground.
