New Short Film: Mount Frosty and the Golden Larches

Join Couch to the Summit's James Stewart on his solo adventure at E.C. Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.

Mount Frosty is a popular trail and the popularity peaks in late September/Early October when the ancient Larches turn a beautiful golden colour. I actually knew nothing about the larches before I set out on this run but was surprised to find hundreds of people in the carpark and then on the trail when I arrived at Mt Frosty (taking the longer ascent via Windy Joe).

Typically I avoid the crowds in the mountains, but I am still happy to have shared in this experience -- all I can say is that if you want to head out there, nature needs to be respected and hikers/campers should stick to the groomed trails and camp only in designated areas to protect the sensitive forests for future generations.
