we did a little back country camping this weekend. This was how our camping spot looked as we arrived on Saturday.
From Buller creek parking lot to Ribbon Lake - Total km return (about 20 km) elevation gained (and lost and gained and lost again) over 671. We also hiked down to Ribbon Falls on Sunday before heading out. Adding another 4 or 5 km on the day. We didn't carry our heavy packs
on that hike though!
