Where I stayed
On the way to Canim we climbed steeply into the mountains, still snowing in places, past glaciers and avalanche areas. Even on these steep, cold roads there were cyclists. It seems to be that the ski resorts have extensive cycle tracks so that in the summer months people visit to do that and to walk the mountain trails. The Grand Tetons also had well-used, beautifully maintained cycle tracks. Noticed that the busses had bicycle racks in front and carried bicycles. (In Vancouver we were also impressed by the polite way that people are treated on busses... A guy in a wheelchair boarded, and the driver immediately put down the special ramp, and rushed to flip back chairs in the bus to make space for him.... Then a couple with a pram got in and the same thing...)
We followed the gold rush trail from Lillooet. The Highway #97 is called the Cariboo Highway. I have a book listing campsites, so we were looking in the area for a good place. A place listed near Squamish , en-route to Whistler, had the most classic ad... It was called Paradise Valley - nogal! But this is their ad taken directly from the book....
"Enjoy quiet camping, no radios please! (earphones only). Quiet guitar strumming until 10:00pm....". So disappointed that I gave my guitar to Thembile when we left the farm ( he couldn't even strum, but was very enthusiastic!!) Just get the feeling that Andy would have enjoyed quiet strumming, with maybe quiet little lyrics added!!!!!
Am missing my bridge. When we got the information for our sailing up to Skagway along the Alaskan Marine Highway, I was very excited to see that there is a card room.... But then it also says that passengers with no cabins are welcome to pitch tents and camp on the decks/ or sleep in lounger chairs... So don't think that it's going to be like The Queen Mary...! It's called The Matanuska, named after a glacier.
