Some friends and I took the day to hike the Garibaldi Lake Trail, an 18km round-trip trail which ascends almost a kilometre up to the glacier-fed Garibaldi Lake. The trail is long and a constant upwards grade on the outgoing journey, and there were quite a few bugs following up and trying to get a snack, but the view of the deliciously blue lakewater at the top was worth the trek.

After a quick scoot around town to get everyone some clean clothes (and more pleasantly scented armpits) we grabbed some dinner and headed to the Burrard Bridge to catch the final night of the Celebration of Light fireworks, where China put on a great show.
