Fog. Hurley River Rd towards Gold Bridge, BC.
I spent the last 3 days almost completely unplugged. We left early Wednesday morning and drove towards Whistler, then took a random forest service road to see where it would take us. It took us, it turns out, 8 miles up and then put us into 3 feet of slushy snow from which we spent 30 minutes extricating ourselves via shovel, jack, and dead tree branches laid down for traction. Backtracking, we explored every small path and side-road until we found ourselves camped on the shore of a tiny little lake. We spent two day decompressing, enjoying the silence, some comfort food and a couple nice bottles of wine, before striking camp this morning, early, in pouring rain. We spent today on more trails and eventually the Hurley River road, which just opened for the season, and took us through fog and snow (it’s June!), before dropping us in Gold Bridge, where we filled up with gas, and turned around to head home. I took a few photographs with the iPhone. I let the rest of my creativity go into words as I worked on a book project that I aim to finish this weekend. Wet. Tired. And blissed out. That was fun! Have a great weekend, y’all.

After long detours home on snow-choked BC roads, Vancouver welcomed me back with open arms on March 5th – cherry blossoms beginning to bloom, […]

There may, or may not, be a hot tub here at Emerald Lake Lodge. A huge 16-person hot-tub. Also, there may or may not be a fermented beverage in the flask (thank you, Dave Delnea). Flask by Filson. Photograph, and mad iPhone skills, by Cynthia Brooke Haynes. Hat by Patagonia.
Arrived last night to one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. Now I know I’m prone to hyperbole. Hell, I might exaggerate more than anyone on the planet, but this time it’s the honest truth. Emerald Lake Lodge in Yoho National Park. If you know where Banff or Lake Louise are, just head […]
