Lake Ohara this Fall - Sep 28

  • September 28, 2013 · 5:30 AM

Looking to go to Lake O'hara this fall to capture it in its autumn colors.
I'm thinking Sep 28 or 29 depending on reservation availability.
I'm planning on staying overnight at the Lake O'hara lodge on Sep 27-29 but I will try order tickets for everyone else for September 28 this Friday, June 28, 2013.

If you RSVP please indicate if you have a vehicle and are willing to give other members a ride.
Also once I secure the reservation, I would like to receive payment for the reservation ticket sometimes in July.

Cost for bus return trip is $14.70

Please RSVP no latter than June 28 as I will be calling that morning to book the reservation.

    did you guys make it to Lake Oesa and all the other small lakes? we were unfortunate with the bad weather but I think it cleared up a little in the afternoon?
    I want to do this yearly so in 2014 I'm thinking maybe September 13 next year. I will be camping for 2 nights next year if anyone interested. Will probably schedule the meetup 5 months prior then expect to get paid for the tickets before actually scheduling it 3 months prior.

      Earl, Suzi and I hiked all the way to Lake Oesa which was cold and a good coverage of snow. The lake looked pretty barren but photos might look good in B&W. We spent a lot of time on the falls and stream along the way since the light was so flat. We were so sorry that we did not see you again, as I thought you were going to catch up to us. Where did you end up for the day? Ed and Marwan hiked the loop around the lake. We caught the 2:30 shuttle back to the parking lot. Great day despite the weather and I greatly appreciate you organizing it. I would be interested again for next year - so please count me in!!

    All, Ed has the tickets for the bus ride for 4 adults. Does anyone of you have a park pass too as you will require one to park.
    Please don't forget to bring $17 for the ticket and I'd be down for hike in the area.

    woo hooo! Thank you Earl! I am thrilled beyond belief. Is anyone doing a hike for the day or just shooting? I am game for a hike also. :)
    Let me know when/where you would like payment for the bus ticket.

    September 9, 2013

    • Earl

      what hike do we all want to do?
      i'm definitely down for Oesa Lake, maybe All Souls alpine route or West Opabin?

      I have not hiked the area before, so I am happy with anything suggested. I am game for longer hikes with elevation so we get great views and opportunity to shoot the other lakes in the area. Also the ledges look interesting from a photography perspective :)

    • Earl

      Jun, I have a camping spot available to come in on Friday afternoon if you wish to attend but this is seat is $40 as it's camping permit and the bus transportation.
      let me know if you are interested. we would have to leave Calgary by 2:30pm

    Thanks earl
    How would you like me to give you the money for the bus?

    September 11, 2013

  • Earl

    spots are confirmed for Marwan and Mary.
    Jason and Margie never paid and just all of a sudden RSVPed no (one of the reasons I hate organizing this kind of events)

    Is the bus ticket for the dire from Calgary to the lake, or is it for something else?

    September 4, 2013

    • Suzi

      The bus is for the special shuttle bus from the parking lot into Lake O'Hara. There is only a limited number of tickets and they usually sell out for summer, weekends, and larch season when they go on sale 3 months before the date. http://www.pc.gc.ca/e...­

    Are all the spots taken for the bus tickets? If so, if anyone who committed and can't make it that day, I would be happy to take their spot. I can drive 5 people also.

  • Earl

    Margie, Ed, Suzi and Jason.
    are you all available to meet sometime in July for the ticket payment?
    Or you can send me an EMT to [masked]

      Sure. Sometime after 6 during the work week will do.

      July 3, 2013

    • Suzi

      sure let me know whens good for you

      July 4, 2013

  • Earl

    Got the tickets for 4 adults, total came down to $70.50 so it will be $17.63 per person.
    Once we have confirmed that Ed can give you guys a ride, then I will need the payment for the tickets in July.

      thanks Ed!

    It's almost 2 hours to get to the park where the bus is so my advice is to leave Calgary before 6am.

    June 28, 2013

  • Earl

    I just purchased 2 camping tickets for Sept 27-28 and will be calling again tomorrow morning for those that RSVPed.

    Margie, Ed, Suzi, Jason, can any one of you drive the rest to Lake Ohara on the 28th?
    You will need to be there by 8:00am to catch the in-going bus at 8:30am.
    Driving back will not be a problem as I will be coming home too on the 28th.

    June 27, 2013

    • Earl

      just don't forget to give some gas money to the driver :)

      June 28, 2013

    • Suzi

      I can't drive but I'll have gas money for sure.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
