"It's safe to say that Garibaldi Provincial Park might not exist if it wasn't for Mount Price. It's an old volcano that created a lava dam that holds in the water for Garibaldi Lake itself. It's seldom visited but offers some spectacular views over this park.
I'd been up it before but had always wanted to spend the night up there.
So, before all the snow melted taking away the only water source nearby, I hiked up there with two friends. Turns out I did very little actual camping.
