Pemberton - This photo essay comes as a second piece to a previous article about hiking the group of three Joffre Lakes in Pemberton area, British Columbia, Canada.
The end of September and early October is the best time to undertake a day's hike to see spectacular scenery and the Matier Glacier in the closest proximity of Vancouver possible. It takes about 200 km to drive along the scenic Sea-to-Sky Hwy 99 through Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton to reach Joffree Lakes Provincial Park on the way between Pemberton and Lilloet.

The three lakes, Lower (1,214 metres above sea level), Middle (1,500 metres) and Upper (1,566 metres) are all connected with one hiking trail of 5.3 kilometres long that starts from the parking lot just 5 minutes of easy walk to the Lower Lake.

The hike is of moderate difficulty and requires good and sturdy hiking boots. The fall scenery and changing colours add to the attraction of the trail which now undergoes a partial upgrade and it is one of the hardest parts in the section of the huge rocks that in presence of rain may be slippery and really hard and dangerous to hike.
