Only in BC can you experience what I did on our first camping trip of the year to Harrison East.
On the way to camp spot, 37 km up Harrison East logging rd , we experienced sunshine, rain , hail, snow, then sun ...all in an hour ...4 seasons!

We were expecting more people but they punk'd because of so called bad weather!! go figure..
But it was actually the opposite , we had a blast camping on Big Silver creek , ended up with a great spot, great weather ALL weekend long and wicked trails including a night Hot tub run in a winter wonderland.

Only in BC can you sit in natural hot tubs with snowflakes , the size of snowballs comin down and surrounded by 3 feet of snow, was freakin ridiculous !!

Ran out of battery on my camera, but Sunday was like 18 degrees and Sunny , summer weather

yeah was sure a windy one , going through both logging camps. The end of Harrison by lesters had like 2-3 foot swells!! Could get a surfboard out was nuts. Then we found our beauty spot. Had sun and like BC Ranger said no wind!

Let's do this soon again!

and i have to agree sitting in the tubs while getting snowed on is the best feeling

That is called a Morel (looks like to me anyways) and apparently they are gourmet delicious. I want to go out looking for them right now, now that I've seen that picture I know they're in season.
