Canada Trip June 2016

copyright (©) by Charlie Calvert

In late June, 2016, we drove up to Canada from Bellevue in Skye, our blue Forester.

Saturday

We started the trip at the Sasquatch EcoLodge. It was a nice quiet place to spend the evening and a pleasant morning. There were many hummingbirds on the back porch, and we were treated to an excellent breakfast by Al and Denny.

Harrison Hot Springs

The hot springs were a disappointment. Several folks had given us good reviews, but I think the hot springs were under new management, and were largely inaccessible. There was a public pool in town which we could go to for about twenty dollars each.

Our time was not wasted, however, as there was an exciting, and interesting dragon boat race. I assume we were looking at various Native American tribes competing in grueling long races that left at least one contestant faint.

Bridal Falls

This is one of the best "road side attractions" in this part of BC. If you have 30 minutes to space, definitely pull off the road and have a look.

Chilliwack Lake

About an hour from our BNB was a beatiful mountain lake with a very rough, but short trail. Margie slipped once, scaring me mightily. She ended up with some scrapes and bumps, but not serious injuries.
