There were fewer people than we expected, possibly because next weekend is a long weekend. The weather was great, we had no rain and less bugs than last time.
An old growth forest, with trees gnawed off by Beavers.
Outhouse in the woods.
A lovely tent campsite closer to Limestone Mountain.
View from above campsite.
Our truck with happy dogs in the back. You can see Limestone mountain in the back.
We were fortunate to see a Bear cub.
Unfortunately a bit far away, but we had the right lens.
It is strange that the cub’s head is black, while the body is brown.
Taken without the right lens.
Elevation 1813 m.
“Limestone Mountain is a minor peak, more like an outlier of The Wedge, than a separate summit. This peak is the runt of the Opal Range, but it is an officially named summit. This little peak only reaches 2173 metres (7,129ft.) and has prominence from its larger neighbour. From the shared col with The Wedge, the elevation gain to of Limestone Mountain is only 53 metres.Prominence measurement on topographic base map – Northern section of Opal Range.” – Summitpost.org
We bring our own fire pit along.
The lantern is filled with Citronella oil for the bugs and light.
Anyone for S’mores?
