Looking back, one of my favourite hikes was a solo hike that I did in 1975 from Tenquille lake to Bralorne. I was trying to recreate a 14 day backpacking hike that I did when I was 16 in 1970 with 4 from the North Shore Hikers across the Paysaten Wilderness from Horseshoe Basin near Orville Washington, south of Osoyoos to Ross Lake, south of Hope. I was looking for similar terrain with lots of alpine meadows, and gentle summits where one could hike for days and days. I did the hike in 1975 from August 13th to August 16th, as a 4 day hike from Tenquille Lake(starting in the Pemberton valley) to Bralorne. I had a very light pack with just a bivy sack and no tent and no stove, that allowed me to travel long distances easily. This today would be called Fastpacking (see: https://youtu.be/LSvNwPxSYhM). To get there and back I hitchhiked. I think that I hiked all the way to Gold Bridge before I could get a ride home. One advantage is that this was a very low cost trip as I only had to buy granola, nuts and raisons for 5 days food. I was planning to hike all the way to McGillivray Pass but bad weather forced me too the valley early.

Note: I have pictures of my original maps and my maps have little arrows with numbers that are associated with the pictures. See the picture number and picture descriptions for each picture.
