Day 4 & 5 - Manning Park

Arrived in Manning Park Sunday afternoon. After setting up camp, a hail storm arrived, but luckily my tent held up ok.  Crashed early.  Next morning, hiked the Heather and Paintbrush Trails enjoying a few wildflowers, scenic vistas and even spotted a Grouse with her chicks.  The bloom was past peak and vistas not quite as impressive as the area around Whistler, but a nice hike regardless.  Caught a nice view of Mt Whitney in the US.  Grabbed a late lunch in town of Hope and returned to Vancouver.
