Swan Falls

Today, I ventured up on Eagle Mountain for the first time. Specifically, I went up the Swan Falls trail. I knew the possibility of snow at high elevations was likely, so the plan was to go up as far as I can and turn around when the snow makes trekking difficult. Unfortunately, the cell phone could not get a GPS signal, so I couldn’t determine the elevation at the turn-around point, but I’d guess it to be 800 or 900 m. Below is my route for today…



Today was an amazing April day. It was sunny with a high close to 20C. However, on the ascent, it was cool (still shaded) and there was breeze, but it was all good. I would say the highlight was the view from the Falls, which are at about 300-350m elevation. Below is a view from the falls looking west, towards Buntzen Lake…

Just before reaching the falls, there is a 45 degree incline, where there is a rope to assist you; see below…

At the trailhead, on the service road, you can see the falls and the creek, which drains into McCombe Lake…

  1. Hey! Great blog, this trail looks amazing and I was planning on doing it at the end of this month and actually camping up there. Do you know what the conditions are like up there? Are the lakes/streams frozen (as a water source)? Are snowshoes necessary? It would be great to hear back! 🙂

    1. Hi there. And thanks.

      I’ve been as close as Lindsay Lake and there were only minor snowy patches there. I doubt there is much, if any, up near the top of Swan Falls.
      Lakes and streams are not frozen.

  2. Having mastered the vastness of the Taobao mega-resource,
    I discovered the advantages of the Aliexpress online trading platform.
    This site is a division of Taobao, but for small wholesalers and wholesalers.
    Why Aliexpress is so good, and what are its shortcomings.

    https://lite.bz/vi3kI8
    The first and greatest advantage of this Internet resource is the absence of intermediaries from both the Russian and Chinese sides.
    That is, you can make purchases on Aliexpress yourself by paying with a card.
    The second advantage is contacting the seller directly, you can ask questions about the product and the timing of the collection of the parcel.
    And of course, you will be given a track – the number of the postal item, so that you can track the movement of the parcel.
    The third significant advantage of Aliexpress is the language of the site – it is English, which makes it very easy to translate and search for goods.
    Of course, those who are not sure of their English can use the on-line google translator or another, the names must be written in the search line in English, even if your page is translated into Russian.
    The fourth advantage is the possibility of free delivery to Russia. This is a very nice little thing, the products can be sorted by selecting this “Free shipping” condition under the search bar.
    The fifth advantage of this small-scale wholesale resource is that you can find a product that is sold for 1 piece, and there is no need to buy extra units of the product.
    To do this, you need to pay attention to the indication of how many units of goods are available for one order, for example: the price costs 5.2 $ / piece and the minimum number of units of goods for one order is not indicated, in another case it is indicated as follows – 3 piece / lot 1.91 $ / piece , that is, the cost of one order is 5.72 dollars,
    and the price of a unit is 1.91 dollars, you must purchase 3 units. Another convenience is the indication of the price of the item in US dollars.
    It is very convenient and understandable, there is no need to rack your brains with transfers from yuan into dollars – rubles. Also, money is debited from the card at the rate set by your bank.
