The Crystal Clear Waters of Watersprite Lake

After seeing a few photos from friends of an incredible green lake hidden in the mountains, I knew that I wanted to hike there. 

I took a Tuesday in the middle of the week for the trip to avoid the crowds, and made the drive up to Squamish. The trailhead was about an 40 minute drive down a logging road near the Sea-To-Summit Gondola. 

 The first part of the hike is pretty standard BC trail, with a few interesting features like this mountain stream.

 But once you make it past the final incline, you arrive at this incredible view.

 It really does look like this. And it's cold (I went for a quick swim).

Not much more to add at this point, except it was a great afternoon of trail running and hiking.
