As part of our ascent of Numa Mountain, we chose a circular route which took us down from Numa Pass, past Floe Lake and back out to the trailhead. This trip report is for the Floe Lake / Numa Pass hike in case you're not a peakbagger but a hiker! :)
After hiking the Stanley Glacier trail (and beyond) the day before, in 28 degree temperatures, Niko (my son) voted for an easier day on Sunday, June 30 2013. I had narrowed our destination into two choices, either Arnica Lake or Boom Lake. It didn't take long for Niko to choose.
Ever since skiing up Vermillion with Scott a few years ago, I wanted to go back for Mount Haffner. The Vermillion burn area makes for some great tree skiing in the right conditions and the no-nonsense approach from hwy 93 makes both of these peaks repeatable - something which I rarely admit to!
