It's me again - hope you're happy to accompany us on our Fall 2018 RV trip in BC and (soon) Alberta.

We headed off early last Friday on a BC ferry, the Salish Eagle, heading from Pender to Tsawwassen
with Mt. Baker looking almost Fuji-like in the clouds.

First a ride on the tram over the drama of the Fraser Canyon at Hell's Gate.


Then through Cache Creek to Hat Creek Ranch, situated on a section of the original Cariboo Wagon Road;
a regular stop for early gold rush miners in BC.  Meticulous restoration of original wallpaper, flooring
and furnishings make a stop at Hat Creek House especially interesting.


A view through lace curtains; this of the horse stables across the lane:

On to Clearwater, gateway to Wells Gray Provincial Park - pristine, untrammelled, peaceful, beautiful. 


Finally after a summer of heat and fire, the weather has turned and it looks as though we're in for rain - 
stay tuned!  Update - whoops I mean snow.  Just heard there's snow forecast for Jasper.  Not sure
where we'll head now, but not Jasper.  A course correction is required.
