Lake of the Hanging Glacier & the Lieutenants Range in the Purcells, Columbia Mountains, BC, Canada.
The Lieutenants Range rises above Lake of the Hanging Glacier in the Purcell Range of the Columbia Mountains, British Columbia, Canada. The trailhead is 1.5 hours drive west of Radium Hot Springs on the dirt Horsethief Creek Forest Service Road. High clearance vehicle recommended. On 2018 July 19, via rough but dry roads plus two small streams crossed, our Toyota Prius V made it carefully to parking at 1 km from the trailhead, making the spectacular hike 11.7 miles round trip with 3100 feet cumulative gain. The scenic reward was worth hiking over and under 60 fallen trees each way. This image was stitched from multiple overlapping photos.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
