June 26th (cont’d): We drove 15km up the Lemon Creek Forest Service Road to get to the Sasquatch Lake Rec Site. On our way, we saw one black bear scamper off into the bushes and many full retaining walls (eeeeeee!). It was worth the drive – we had the site to ourselves!
June 27th: We made our way back to Kaslo to spend the night in the municipal campground. On the way, we made a side trip up to Buchanan Lookout. It was 12km up a FSR with absolutely stunning views from up top.
June 28th: First thing in the morning, we checked out Fletcher Creek Falls (after coffee of course). We ooo-ed and ahhhh-ed and looked at rocks and then headed to the SS Moyie. The SS Moyie is the oldest known intact passenger sternwheeler in the world. The Kootenay Lake Historical Society (and others) have done a great job at turning it into a museum.
June 29th to July 1st: We hung out with Les’s cousins (Roben and Tracy) and their friends at the cabin in Eagle Bay. It rained steadily the whole time. We played games, read, and napped. It was rad.
I should add that we ate very well in Eagle Bay.
