Our most excellent BC outback adventure!!

This was one of the best trips of the year. A weeklong journey through our B.C. outback and almost all of our trip was completed on gravel roads. My only regret was not taking a bigger memory card for my camera as I could have taken triple the pictures.

The highlights are endless but the people we traveled with was one of the best parts!!!! What a great group!! The scenery was spectacular the secluded lakes were relaxing and hard to leave. Our camp deer that was running around camp all weekend was fun and it was very strange to see a dear pop it’s head up with a piece of toilet paper of it’s mouth.

Looking forward to the next adventure!!

This is the most amassing part of our journey. The Yalakom valley. This was going up to Poison Mountain. Straight up to 7400ft
and very windy and cold. The girls got scared and walked down. This does not show how steep it was but you wouldn’t want to turn around on that road.:

Great pics, great write-up, great people, great trip[36]

I filled a 512mb camera card after the first 3 days, and then filled half of another one the rest of the trip. Got over 500 pics, I'll go through and post some over the next few days. I took a sweet video of the 360 degree view we got from the top of poison mountain.[8D]

Best trip yet that we have been on , seen some beautiful country[ why would anyone want to go elsewhere ?}The 2 dogs still have not recovered from the trip or maybe they are missing all the attention they got from the kids everyday , 1 good tip for parents if you need to wake up your kids early to leave camp send in the 2 speed bumps -Toby and Brandy , there was no complaining when we put them in the tents to wake up the kids but if we tried ,boy we would have got yelled at and complaints :D

No it’s still a mystery. No one from this site is or was up there. Why would they write the sign? Did someone look at the FIBC and want to mess with our minds? They wrote it in lipstick and it was still wet when I touched it.

I cant figure it out. Any idea’s?
