A Chilly Yak

Yak Peak, intimidating and majestic in its winter coat, but a surprisingly fun hike in summer. Thankfully it was easy to get this shot from the car to avoid going back out into that frigid cold!

On our way back from our New Year backcountry adventure we drove along the Coquihalla highway, passing Yak Peak perfectly lit by the afternoon sun. I love this angle as it makes the mountain look just so spectacular, and for so long left me wondering how on earth it was possible to get to its summit without being a rock climber. After last August’s hike, I know now its secret 😉

Back to today, and the famous Coquihalla breeze was blowing snow across the ridge tops. While it was tempting to wish ourselves up there for the view, it was cold enough without the extra wind chill, so we were quite content to admire the scene from the car and warm up with refreshments from the Blue Moose!
