Met a few guys that just came to Canada not too long ago, so me and my friends decided to take them out out for a drive show them what this place it's all about.[36]

The trip:
We only decided on the location at the last seccond, but I was happy with the decision since I've only been at the lowe Hut lake once before. This time we were gonna push further see how far the trail goes. I knew there were two lakes up there, but after meeting some guys on the trail we found out that there are actually 3 lakes! so we were determined to check them out.

I got pics and videos.Enjoy!

The waterfall. Not too many pics because we shot videos. I was the first up. I don't know what my friends were thinking, but once on top (rear wheels still in the waterfall) they steered me right over this big rock which made my truck slip and put me in a bad position (you can see it in the vids). The silver 4door is manual, so he had his share of fun, and the G on 31's was probably the most uneventfull climb.

Then we met these guys. They clered up the trail to upper Hut, so we had it easy.

The only pic from Upper Hut:

Now that we knew there was a third lake up there, we just had to check it out. The trail was badly overgrown. Having just a hand saw and an ax, we were making slow progress.

Finally, we found the third lake. It doesn't have easy access to the water though. We drove just past the lake where the trail came to an end. we had lunch, then turned arround. I really want to know if that lake has a name now.

Here's a few pics on the way down:

there are some trails like the waterfall but tougher just up at the west side of stave, but kinda hidden.
The G Wagens seem quite capable, I'll let ya know the next time I go to check them out, It has been a few years since I have been there so hopefully not too overgrown yet.

I don't know where starvation Lake is. I drove all the way to the end of the trail (unless I missed something) and after the Upper Hut there was only one more lake, and I don't think that's Starvation.
However there was another group that went up just a week or two ago and they said they made it there.
I would like to go check it out as well, so hopefully somebody's gonna organize a run soon :)

Did those lakes for the past 3 weeks. The road from Paradise Valley to Starvation is block at the train tracks , the only access is now off the highway..will have to come with us , maybe in 3 weeks again!

Oh yeah man! 10in of snow would be no joke there :) I guess we were very lucky...we only hit snow in a few mostly flat areas.

Yes Sonny, we were all fully locked on the way up through that section, (I might have turned my front locker off right after the waterfall). Actually we used the lockers even on the way down, for better "brake ballance".

So does anybody know what that last lake name is?

Good stuff Raz, its alot of fun up there.

Razon

Yeah, it was one of my better trips yet. I've been up there before once, but didn't bother going past Lower Hut since I was told you need a winch to get up there and I was by myself (one truck) that time.
Between going on a new challenging trail, and cutting the overgrown branches between uper and "upper upper" lakes, it was like a little adventure for us :)
