    I'm doing Cirque Peak the day before, so I'm thinking of staying at Mosquito Creek. Is it ok if I meet you guys at the trailhead? Are you starting from the lodge on Bow Lake, like in Bob Spirko's description?

      Absolutely no problem. Yes we'll start at the lodge. Hard to give an exact time to meet there but should be around 8:15 am +/- 15 minutes.

      Perfect. I'll be there before 8 am. I drive a green Subaru Impreza.
