Only a few more days till spring is here and the winter doldrums can be ‘kicked to the curb’. I, for one can hardly wait.
The sun was out this morning so we headed out in search of an afternoon of ‘mother nature’ exploration?
As we headed east the clouds were getting thicker and darker..oh oh..I think we went in the wrong direction?
First stop was the small town of Deroche, home of the best beef jerky and pepperoni…and ‘fried chicken’
..with the purchases loaded in the jeep we continued onward..savouring the smells coming from the ‘grocery bag’..
We stopped at Kilby Provincial Park..the rain was just starting…
..this provincial park is on the banks of the Harrison River..
..Tucker’s first swim of the day..
he is in his usual position..completely airborne?
..one muddy foot print..
with Tucker loaded in the back of jeep we continued towards Harrison Hot Springs..
and then onwards to Deer Lake in Sasquatch Provincial park..
there were a few hardy campers occupying some of the campsites..this would be our lunch spot for today..
..swim number 2 for the golden boy..
..some trips are all about the ‘Tuck-meister?’
..and then the snow began?
and where is the dog?..still swimming, of course..
time to head back..lots of mountain ‘run off’..there were a few ‘waterfalls’ along the road back to Harrison Hot Springs..
..Harrison lake..no, Tucker did not swim here..
We were headed towards home but decided to make one more stop..the town of Aggssiz..home of the Fraser Valley Fishing Lodge..
a beautiful lodge on the shores of the Fraser River..
..the view from the rooms..
..picture perfect..with the snow on the mountains..
I wonder how much it costs to stay here??..may have to look into that?
We ended our day with a walk along the dyke just steps from the lodge..
..the views were amazing..
..and of course, where there is water, there is Tucker..
..the last body of water today?..the Fraser River..
..looks like this boat ‘ran aground?’..a few years ago?
..so as this weekend comes to a close..we seem to have found a ‘cure for what ails, you?..
Nothing like a day exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer..
Cost of this cure?
$12 for lunch
$38 for gas
time well spent with two of the ‘men’ in my life?..Priceless
