Sunset HDR's at the Refuge Tetras

I've been catching up a lot on the HDRs from the trip this time and half to go back to the first night sunset. Here are a few from that evening ... Sunset from Refuge Tetras Sunsets over Xalibu Watching the Sunset

Different paths on the same day

One of the things I found extremely amusing was the drastic changes possible between walking paths that we experience throughout the hike. Here is a very specific example of the change in paths within a period of no less than a half an hour. The first image below is the trail that we had to hike in the woods descending from the Xalibu lookout and to the cabin below that I pointed out in previous images. The second one is the trail that was directly following that same cabin. Slight difference.

Down to the lakes

A few posts ago I showed a few pictures of the destination; a cabin down on one side of the mountain. The actual path down follows a ridge back and forth down into the forest. This is the view on the complete other side of the mountain!

Up to Mount Xalibu

After looking off the lookout I showed a couple of posts ago, believe it or not, we had to keep climbing in order to go down. We figured the 'sketchy Inukshuk paths' were finished, but alas, this was not the case. Here was the path heading up:

This kind of path again?

Here is a link to a panorama of the top of this peak, Mount Xalibu. Zoom in using the "+"/"-" buttons on the bottom right and then scroll around to your hearts content!

Here is a quick 'hero shot' from the top of the peak with Marc and the great view in the background.

And finally ... look at the path to head down!

Despite the lack of wildlife seen on this trip (at least compared to what was expected), I found this image kind of cute!

Here is another great view from that lookout mentioned over the last couple of days. I just figured that it deserved its own post since it is one of my favourites from this spot.

The rest of what we could see

Yesterday I showed you the view to the next cabin from the look-out, but to be fair, the view was pretty incredible from up there as well. Here are two quick images that show some of the view. The third image was neat because it was something we picked out and zoomed in on with the camera to confirm whether or not we actually saw correctly. On the other side of this huge valley is another lookout from another path within the parc!
