Aug 28, 2018 - Leaving Smithers - East to Cluculz Lake

Another place we have to leave, wishing we had more time to explore – especially the fossils at Driftwood Canyon Provincial Park!!! One more reason for another excursion along Highway 16 to Smithers and beyond!! A pretty chill morning, everyone slept in a little bit, before Jax cooked up a delicious breakfast – loads of bacon, eggs n’ hash browns!!! Breaking camp was fast, we seem to be getting the hang of this, and we climbed out of the valley, and back onto Hwy 16 East for a short (300km) jump to Cluculz Lake. It was a beautiful drive,...

Aug 19, 2018 - Fishing, Swimming & Ghost Stories @ Cluculz Lake

It was an abnormally chilly morning, so we were thankful for our furnace, and fleece!!! I took my water, and sat up on the patio looking out over Cluculz Lake – a beautiful (yes, still smoky) morning, and the lake was incredibly still.

Dalton fired up some pancakes, mini and monster, for the kids – they took plain, I took blueberry, followed by his signature Loaded Omelettes, simply divine, just ask Jax!!! The coffee was compulsory too,...

Aug 17, 2018 - Scary Big Smoke - PG, then to Cluculz Lake

This morning was the night we thought this vacation was over. It started out smoothly enough, the smoke was relatively light, the camp was more or less broken due to packing up the night before. A light breakfast, a quick stop at the Sani-Dump, free thanks to the previous user, and we were heading north on Highway 97. The smoke soon became heavier, and Jax became more and more nervous as our visibility dropped, and so did I. Little did we know, it was about to get a whole lot worse. By the time we hit Hixon, the Sepia landscape had turned...
