Tranquil lake

Another throwback-Thursday shot from 2011 – enjoying the view over Tenquille Lake and over towards the next day’s destination, Mt McLeod.

Tenquille Lake had been on our to-go list for years but we knew the road required a high-clearance (and possibly 4×4) vehicle. In June 2011 we bought a 1999 Honda CR-V and this was the first trip where we tried out its capabilities. Mostly it passed with flying colours though fully loaded with 5 hikers and overnight gear it struggled in a couple of places. We bottomed out in a couple of spots, and I needed to be a little bit aggressive in one section to get the car over a rough bit but it was so satisfying to make it to the trailhead alongside some bigger SUVs and pickups.

Most of all I still remember the feeling of getting through that first water bar… I think we all cheered!
