This is the first day of the Backcountry Adventure South Chilcotin trip. After the float plane drop on Lorna Lake you will make your way over both Lorna and Deer Pass before setting up camp on the edge of Hummingbird Lake.

Expect this route to take 4-6 hours given how much time is spent taking in the unbelievable vistas along the way.
