Jul 18, 2019 - Wells Gray Provincial Park, British Columbia

July 18. Today is drive-through wells gray Provincial park day! I don’t remember 3/4 of the road, like maybe 18 miles, being a dirt road. Allan recalls us and the Rich’s driving the dirt road to one of the campgrounds up at the North end/top of the park. It’s hard packed dirt, not gravel, but you have to watch out for the potholes! There are a lot of them. I am sure you can hear Allan swearing loudly every time he hit one. 𯘱㺸 obviously we are in the car! Some of the roads were comparable to the African safari jeeps!!! Along the road...

Jul 18, 2013 - The Best Waterfall Day Ever

You already know about our keen interest and enjoyment in waterfalls. Today was the ultimate. We visited Wells Gray Provincial Park, which is called Canada's Waterfalls Park. Within the boundaries of this park there are 39 waterfalls. A great many of them are not easily accessible, but we still were able to see half a dozen or so ... all in one day ... what a thrill. All of the water from this watershed flows into the North Thompson River and eventually into the Frazier. We would visit this park again.

Sep 5, 2009 - Well Gray Provincial Park

We took off in the morning and head to the end of the road to see about taking a boat tour on Clearwater and Azure lakes. On the way we stopped at an old homestead called Ray Farm. I took a short walk on a trail to the old homestead. There was plenty of bear food but no sign of them along the trail. When we reached the lake a light rain started and we found that the chances of a boat tour were slim as they had a minimum number that was needed and we were the only people expressing an interest. We headed back to camp for lunch and spent the...

Jul 28, 2008 - Clearwater (Wells Gray Provincial Park)

Wat vertellen we vandaag over onze dag te Clearwater...Clearwater city sucks (excusez-moi le mot), maar in het Wells Gray park hebben ze dan wel weer de mooiste watervallen van B.C. We verblijven aan de ingang van het park en beslissen om meteen tot aan het eindpunt te rijden. Daar bevindt zich Clearwater Lake, uitvalsbasis voor een hike langs het meer. Het pad leidt ons langs het meer, door het woud. Bap gaat op kop en hangt binnen de kortste keren vol spinnenwebben. Blijkbaar zijn we de eerste vandaag die het pad volgen (en misschien ook...
