Garibaldi Lake

Sunrise over Garibaldi Lake. It takes several hours to cross Garibaldi Lake depending on conditions. Most years one may cross in April and in some as late as June. When the water is open, it makes for a much longer trip. Sometimes the scenery is spectacular, and other times all you see is blowing snow. .

Approaching Sentinel Bay.  No sun today.
