Needle Peak

I joined my friend Russ for a hike up Needle Peak, near the Coquihalla summit and about halfway between his home in Kamloops and mine in Vancouver.  It's a great hike, with the first half hour or so on a steep forested slope, but then the rest of the day in rocky subalpine and alpine.  A little scramble took us to the summit, which looks like it should take a lot more climbing to get there.  The drawing has Needle Peak in the background of an alpine tarn on Flatiron mountain, the next peak over, and an easy part of the same day's walk.
