The ominous peaks of Tombstone Territorial Park looming above the low hanging clouds at Divide lake. After a few nights at Talus Lake, we packed up and headed to Divide lake for 3 nights. Relative to Vancouver Island alpine, the trek was relatively moderate in terrain and elevation gain. However, our packs ranged between 80-100lbs, which made this seemingly easy hike into a grueling 4 hour sufferfest. Nothing felt better than dropping my pack at my tent pad feeling the relief off my back!

After eating a late dinner, the weather started to change rapidly, and the socked in clouds started to lift. I quickly grabbed my gear and started searching for a comp. As soon as I stumbled across this spot, low hanging fog rolled in and created some beautiful atmospheric conditions. Our stay at Divide Lake was off to a great start!
