Fork Peak - a nice journey!

It was such a nice weekend we just had to get out there! Neil, Dave and I wanted to keep the outing simple and not too long. Next weekend we are doing a 100km's for the Vancouver100. Here we are on the top of Fork Peak in the Grouse area. Fork Peak has been added to the list of North Shore peaks included in this years Bagger Challenge.  It is accessible via a very nice rolling trail at the end of Goat Ridge about 1km past Goat Mountain.  We also bagged Goat and Dam while we were out there to make a trio of peaks for our first bagging outing of the year.  
Here's Dave and I enjoying some lunch with a very nice view of the Needles range behind us.  
Look what came by when we were on top of Dam. 
Koola and Grinder, the grizzly bears at Grouse were very active when we went by. We even witnessed the 2 of them standing on their hind legs and having a bit of a fight. It was quite something to see. Thank goodness there is a fence between us and them! 
Today we had a good run at Hayward Lake in the morning and ended the day with an evening bike ride on the Pitt Meadows dykes. 
It is such a peaceful ride with magnificent views. Great way to cap off the weekend. Next post will be all about Vancouver 100. We are really looking forward to the journey - it's our 25th wedding anniversary so we will have plenty to reminisce about along the way!

    Training is done. Well done! The excitement is building and soon the journey begins. I'll think of some more platitudes while I'm out there for a very long time next weekend. How about this, one foot in front of the other is all it takes to get closer to the end and if I start now I'll be done sooner. Yup.
