Probably seven or eight years ago, Topher and I decided we’d try to hike to and camp at Garbaldi Lake near Squamish. People said, “it’s an easy hike.” Hah! When you’re as out of shape as we were and as completely overpacked, it's all bad. We turned around about 3.5 km in near the end of the switchbacks, and came home defeated, exhausted and in pain.

Today we redeemed ourselves. We hiked the 9km up to Garbaldi Lake with friends; it was a pleasant hike and we did fine. It’s amazing what being fit will do!
