It’s been awhile – sorry. This blog thing is hard to keep up but I know it will be worth it! We just arrived in Whistler, BC (beauitful!) after spending 4 days at Jasper National Park and 4 days on lovely Valentine Lake near 100 Mile House in BC.
We met some great camping neighbors at the Snaring River Camground outside of Jasper. John & Trish from the UK – shared fire, conversation, book titles, and lots of beer and scotch!
We (OK, Henrik) also made some upgrades to the house – most fun(?) are our new drawer pulls.
We went on some beautiful hikes, spent a day geocaching in Jasper, and did some fly fishing. So…not only is Henrik a good handyman, he is a good provider of fish (although he is too much of a wuss to gut and clean – that was left for me to do. Yummy rainbow trout for dinner on our last evening.
Headed off early on August 5 for the Cariboo Highway and relaxing for a few days. Found an absolutely lovely spot on Valentine Lake where we spent 4 days reading, swimming, fishing, and hiking. Perfect. Also met some a very fun couple (on their honeymoon!) – Scott & Shawn Ferguson and their dogs Stetson and Diesel. We had a blast with them!
So far, an amazing trip filled with new friends, good food and drink, and tons of relaxation.
