We drove to Quesnel and Dragon Lake. We got a site at Robert’s Roost that faces the lake and is very close to the boat ramp. I put the boat in the water and fished with no success this morning. Then a rain storm with thunder and lightening blew in, so we went to Walmart. We are on the road again tomorrow.
We drove through Lillooet and on to Cache Creek, where we stayed in a private RV park that is OK and has full hookups. I looked around for a place to fish and found this park. I did not know what the facilities of the BC Provincial Parks are, but this one is very nice and has public access to the Thompson River. Next time through here, I’ll stay at this park.
Everyone said that it would be a beautiful drive northeast from Whistler to Lillooet, but nobody said it was 13% grades and many switchbacks. It is a challenging road with great scenery.
I went fishing in the morning, then we went into town and ate dinner.
We got across the border without incident, and are on the way up the 2010 Olympics highway to the mountains.
We are not stopping, or even slowing down through Seattle. Maxine was asleep and missed even seeing it. We came straight up Hiway 5, skipping the Olympic Peninsula, Vancouver Island, and all the beauty here. Oh well, maybe next trip. Here are some pictures I took as we drove through.
Pictures of Portland as we passed through. It seems to be a city of bridges. Coming from dry SoCal, so much water seems unfair.
RV parks vary in their setup, locations, and amenities. The one we stayed in last night vs. the one we are at tonight highlight some major differences.
Woodland Shores RV park in WA, tiny, narrow spots, no tables, hardly tolerate dogs
While driving the RV, I see things I want to take pictures of, but it is hard to stop, turn, and park. So I keep my camera handy and take the pictures when I see them. Unfortunately, that often means imperfections in the images, but these are for amusement, not sale. So please ignore the bugs, and enjoy.
