I know it is only for an extended weekend, but it sure feels good to get back on the road again, hey Harley! Had another 5 days off to kill, so pulled out the old maps to find somewhere interesting to go. Decided that since I had never been up north of Revelstoke, and the map looked interesting, the weather good, it would be just the time to check it out. Quick stop at Tim Horton's in Golden on the way. The road (highway #23, actually) runs right along the side of Revelstoke Lake for almost 150km, and I was pretty sure it would be paved. Sure enough, the road was in great shape, and yes, it was paved! And the traffic! Well, about 2 vehicles per hour was it! And lots of very nice Forest Service rec sites along the way, as well as Martha Creek Provincial Park. Martha Creek was full, but was way too busy anyway. Settled in to a beautiful 'view' site in Carnes creek rec site. At $10. you could afford to stay all month. A few families were there as well as quite a few anglers who were trying their luck in a number of small boats. A beautiful sunset, and a full view of the southern sky in case the satellite dish wanted to fire up Sat by the fire till the stars were shining bright.
