Ascent Trip Report

ascend loop via lac Pioui. Beautiful with the blueberry bushes in fall colors (red) mixed with the lichen. Great views, throughout most of the hike. One of my favorites ever.

Note: Hiked on a Monday and traffic was very light; on weekend, expect huge crowds, though hiking Piou loop will reduce traffic greatly.
