After Katrine Lake, we continued about .75 km (1/2 mile) along Trail 2h, until the junction with 2i. We turned right on 2h and continued on to Pyramid Bench where we had been on Monday. The trail climbed steadily and was quite muddy in places. This portion of the hike was about 2.35 km (1 1/2 miles) with an elevation gain of 82 meters (269 feet).
Shortly past Katrine Lake, we came to the junction of the trail over the outfall stream from Pyramid Lake. A lot of downed trees kind of spoiled the views.
Despite the lateness of the season, flowers could still be found.
A few other detail shots presented themselves along the way, including berries growing through coloured leaves, moss, fallen logs, fungi and pine resin glistening in the sunlight.
A flicker of motion caught my eye and looking up, we spotted this Pileated woodpecker looking for his next meal.
The path, at times muddy, continued onward and upward, until we saw glimpses of emerald lakes in the valley below.
Growling stomachs and a striking view told us that it must be lunch time.
