It’s rare to find an ideal window of weather for cycling when B.C. coast is involved. When the forecast opened up for the upcoming week I sprint up north without a set plan and hit a jackpot that I may never experience again.Continue reading “Lund, Gold River, Etc.”
In the name of exploring places closer to home, we decided to take a look at Harrison Lake, BC. The lake is mostly famous for its hot springs on southern end. It’s actually quite large, covering 218 km² and 60km long according to Wikipedia. At the north-end of the lake, there is a small community called Port Douglas, also known as in-SHUCK-ch.
To plan our route I went over to my mapping app and came up with a hypothetical counter-clockwise loop starting from Vancouver, up north following the west side of the lake; then east side of Lillooet River and Lillooet Lake; turning south via Pemberton and follow Sea-to-Sky highway back home, all in seven days. Then we decided to start from Coquitlam to make the first day distance bearable.
