Now for something completely different - Canoeing adventures at Murtle Lake
British Columbia is full of beautiful quiet places to enjoy nature that are not accessible by a vehicle. Recently, I got to go on a Caledonia Ramblers hiking club trip to Murtle Lake Provincial Park. Murtle Lake is located 100 km South of Valemont, on Highway 5. It is the largest non-powered lake in North America! All the campsites and trail heads are only accessible by canoe or kayak

Time to myself (sort of)
After spending a few days with my friends at Mt. Robson, it was time to head out towards Jasper. As I already did the hill a few days before and the morning looked gloomy, I decided to have Mary-Jo drop me off at Moose Lake. It was raining along the way, but by the time we reached the lake, it had stopped.

In my last post, I was riding towards Mt. Robson after being dropped off just after Mcbride, by my friends.

Time for some more riding!
This year I decided to stay closer to home. I originally thought of bringing my bike back down to San Francisco to ride to the Mexico border, but since I decided to go to Peru next year, I wanted to save as much as possible. I actually have the money for the Peru trip, but I want to keep as much as possible in the bank so that I can buy a plane ticket when the time is right.

I have been having an awesome bike trip!
I first rode to Purden, staying a day at the lake. I unexpectantly bumped inti hiking friends there and hanged around with them. Next morning, another friend picked me up and dropped me off 70 km before Robson Shadows campsite. I biked the rest of the way.
I spent a couple of days hiking and biking with them. The I got dropped off 65 km before Jasper. I rode fully loaded then to the Jasper hostel. I met an organized Aventure Cycling tour starting out there on one of their first Canadian tours.
I rode the next day 50 km to Honeymoon Lake, then next day Another 50 km to the Columbia Icefields. I explored around, before heading back to Jasper the next day. I rode the whole 100 km to Jasper as it was easy going back, mostly downhil!
Good thing I did that as its raining today.
I do not have to leave until Sunday. Relaxing, charging devices today. Catching the train home....
