I am doing my best to convince these brave souls that I do know where I am going ( I think) as we make our way through this rockpile, on a high altitude alpine route from Lake Oesa via Yukness Ledges to Lake Hungabee and then over to Opabin Lakes, across to Opabin Prospect and across the north side of Mt. Schaffer and down to Schaffer Lake. Spectacular views abound. We completed the trek without incident. These rockpiles are a great place to spot a tiny animal called a Pika. Not until they move do you see them: a little gray beast with large round ears and tail. You hear their nasal "eek" first. Where are we, why in The Lake Ohara reigon of Yoho National Park of course.
