May 25, 2019 - Lac La Hache, BC

Traveling to just past Lac La Hache to Kokanee Bay Motel & Campground on the lake, up on Canada Highway 97. Our trip was 4 hours and 15 minutes and 217.7 miles. The trip was longer for several reasons. Slower driving due to the rain, and secondly because Keith was having problems with his engine loosing power on up hill grades. We all stopped once to let his engine recuperate, and another time we pulled over to fix lunch and let his engine recuperate. Then as we came to a town called 100 Mile House, there was a Chevy dealer (their motorhome...

Aug 8, 2015 - Lac la Hache Provincial Park

My niece Gail, who is also a reader of this journal, has been on my case. She's asking why don't I wake up and get busy with writing? Truth is we have been so busy traveling this summer that we decided to just kick back and do nothing for awhile, and that includes writing. My excuse and sticking to it!! So way back on Aug. 8 we departed Prince George and had a pleasant day driving further south to Lac la Hache Provincial Park. Another one of B.C.'s gems. Unfortunately I didn't get any good shots of the lake, so I just stuck in this poor one...

Dream On

May 13, 2014 - Lac la Hache, BC

We arrived early at the Sumas, WA crossing into Canada and just drove up to the girl in the crossing station. We got through the border faster than the line of NEXUS card holders beside us. The Fraser River was muddy, as usual. Is it ever clear? We managed to get to the great Kokanee Bay RV Park (and Motel) on the large Lac la Hache. Our site was one of two right on the lake....excuse me, the "Lac". Frankly, why do BRITISH Columbians allow “Lac” for “Lake?” This would not happen in Alberta, believe me (Ed)! We couldn't believe how close...

Aug 23, 2013 - Making progress toward home

8-22-2013 From: Meziadin Lake, PP, BC, Canada. To: Vanderhoof, BC. On the road this morning pretty early. The end of the Cassiar Hiway was better than the beginning. We saw a mama black bear this morning about 20 minutes into our trip. She was starting to cross the road, so we slowed way down to give her some room, (unfortunately too far away to get a photo) and then she called her 2 little cubs to cross the road too. Spike said she was a smart bear, as she realized that it was a busy road, and waited to make sure it was safe for her babies...

Jun 2, 2013 - On to Lac La Hache

We had a beautiful but taxing drive today. We got 190 miles before we decided to stop at a campground early to make sure I had WIFI for my work week Monday and Tuesday. We stopped at Big Country campground where we will set for 3 nights. Again we had rain and sunshine both. This park isn't anything to write home about but not bad either. I did some classifying of my 'gold dirt' until I got rained out.

May 20, 2013 - Lac La Hache, BC

The destination today is Kokanee Bay RV Resort in Lac La Hache. Lac La Hache is a recreational and retirement community in the Cariboo region. Located on the shore of Lac La Hache near the regional center of 100 Mile House, the community's origins date to the days of the Cariboo Gold Rush and the Cariboo Wagon Road, for which it provided an important roadhouse. Its name comes from a story about an axe thrown in the lake, and originally it was equally known as Axe Lake until the French version of its name became preferred. The pluses of this...

May 18, 2013 - Camping in the rain

5-15-2013 Rosedale-to Lac La Hache Provincial Park We drove up the Frasier river Canyon today. The weather was partly sunny as we drove through 7 different tunnels, one after another. That was fun and different. I can’t say that I have ever been through 7 tunnels in a row. When leaving the Frasier river canyon, the terrain totally changed from a heavily wooded wilderness to an arid terrain like eastern Washington. This happened about Lytton and the Thompson river canyon area. Then about milepost 100 it changed again to rolling grasslands...

May 21, 2010 - Lac La Hache

Fri. May 21 Left The Cedars RV Resort near Ferndale this morning looking for a good price for Diesel fuel. Need to top the tank off with as much fuel as I can. I’m sure the price over the border is higher. At the border the guard told us to go inside for further instruction and expect a random walkthrough inspection. I went inside while RA was hiding the MS. The gal behind the desk ask me several questions, where I last owned property, how we get our mail, where I worked, where a mailing address is, and where my guns are. I answered all her...

May 19, 2009 - Lac La Hache, BC - Kokanee Bay Motel and Trailer Court - Site 44

Here we are in Lac La Hache, BC, about 200 miles south of Prince George. We are staying at the Kokanee Motel and Trailer Court which has a very nice campground. The sites are a little small but the view is worth it and they provide WiFi. The trip took about five hours as we rarely exceeded 55 mph due to the winding road and up and down mountains. It was a beautiful drive through the mountains, along side the Fraser River for a good bit of the trip. We went through several tunnels and I have included pics of a few. Once we left the...

2009 Alaska

Sep 13, 2008 - Fir Crest Resort Lac La Hache, B.C.

Today we drove another 188 miles. The scenery has turned into lots of rolling farm land stretching our for miles with beautiful green pastures. We have seen farming of everything from food to every kind of creature including buffalo and llamas. :-) We are truly seeing the western culture of British Columbia. It kind of reminds me of Montana with all the horses and hay in the fields. We drove though some beautiful towns with flowers lining the streets and huge lakes. I am adding a few pictures, please excuse the dirty windshield. We did...

Jun 17, 2008 - Day 37 Whistler, BC to Lac la Hache, BC

We traveled from Whistler, BC to Lac la Hache, BC today. We saw a baby bear along the way. At least Shirley saw the bear as we were going down a 13% grade at the time and John was standing on the breaks. Sorry no picture, bear moves faster than Shirley can.

Jun 3, 2008 - Lac La Hache, B.C.

We started out this morning under another drizzly sky. Today was a long travel day. John says we have to average 100 miles per day in order to make it to and from Alaska in two months. Manuel has indicated he would like to be back home by the first of August, but the vote is still out on that as Sue has not yet agreed. So, today we headed north on Highway 1 to Hope and drove through the Fraser River Canyon. The river was running absolutely the fullest possible, almost over its brink. It was churning and muddy from the runoff from snow...
