It was nice getting some unexpected company for the weekend.... We had a trip planned for Monday and Mike came up. The weather was bad til we stopped for lunch, then it stopped raining and eventually we saw the sun.



Lunch time:

The other side... Idiot carnage!!![13] We have some of the same idiot types here who think it is neat to dump cars in the wilderness. There are 2 vehicles in the creek. The tan/white spot on the rock ledge to the left of the car is a deer rotted to just bones. :

Took the other road at the bottom to see where we end up. :

Looking back down Dakota Creek Valley to the chanel between Gambier and Bowen Is. Seconds after I took this pic the Horseshoe Bay- Langdale Ferry appeared rounding Hood Pnt., in the water at the base of Cypress Mtn. in the distance.:

The road ended just short of the snow line:

Looking the opposite direction at the Georgia Straight. The white spot visible between the two taller trees at the lowest point of water is a Naniamo ferry:

Awesome pictures! I Love the Sunshine Coast, it is very beautiful over there. We spent many summers over there fishing when I was a kid, but always at a provincial campground. I'd like to find other more remote places to explore..Looks like you had a good time!
Take it easy.:)





I'd rather be my kinda crazy than your kinda sane!!
