View Full Version : Vacation... Up and Around
08-15-2008, 10:36 AM
Well, T.O., Mudgirl and I decided to take a little vacation. We headed out on Friday night with my sister who was heading up to PG for a week..
We managed to make it past Hope on Friday night where we slept between the road and the railway....
headed off through some tunnels... why on earth do people hold there breath through tunnels?
Check out the desperate advertising at this cafe...
Me at Hell's Gate
Anyone want to have a drink at
Anyone want to go for a bike ride at
Stopped for a break at 108 mile house
Where T-O told me how he really feels about this trip...
And a picture of my lovely sister...
Then we arrived to visit Joe and a storm rolled in
And someone has the SWEETEST dog ever!
A happy little family
From there we left and went to the Sheridan Lake/ Bridge Lake area, visited the friendly locals and camped at Crystal Lake...
Todd feeds the locals...
Jenny feeds us ... why is she laughing and pointing at the food? Has she poisoned us?

We take in some fishing and Jenny takes in a hammock!
Todd lands a beauty... good eats!
Jenny hits the water to cool down...
And Todd decides to try it out.....
And Jenny is amused...apparently she is immune to the cold water...
Todd yoinks the hammock
Jenny laughs at first...
Then Todd settles in for the afternoon..
At first Jenny tries to be nice about it..
But soon she realizes she's out of luck
And the day ends with some fishing and fire...
From there we moved on to Deer Lake...

At Deer Lake....
Some tasty shish kabob
I watched the sun rise the next morning
and then we headed into Little Fort to get Jenny's tire fixed...
from there we had lunch in Kamloops, bought some groceries and moved on to Glimpse Lake
at this point we had an unexpected turn of events when Jenny's car hit a soft shoulder and she rolled into a ravine (yes, she's a-ok!)
We couldn't do much at that late time, so we went on to Glimpse Lake and spent the night...
the cows invaded the camp
Todd watching the fish
Then we headed back to Merrit and home...
