Day 299 – June 14th, 2017
Clearwater, British Columbia
Well’s Gray Provincial Park
A Quick Trip Through Our Town

It was time to leave the Shuswap and start heading north east.  Our drive took us through Chase, British Columbia, so we had to stop fro a couple of photo ops !

And, well Rick just had to pose in front of the “Chase, A Shuswap Experience”

And we got a real kick out of this poster  !

Chase was a cute little town overlooking the Thompson River

We were heading to Well’s Gray Provincial Park near Clearwater B.C. And our drive would take us through the Kamloops area, where the landscape would change dramatically, as sandstone hills began to appear

And the first sights of hoodoo type land formations, with their glacial grooves

Well’s Gray Park is one of B.C.’s most beautiful Provincial Park and boasts 22 waterfalls.  It is the 4th largest Proviinicial Park in B.C. And covers 5,250 sq kilometers. It is meant for remote camping, as you take a 60 km road into it, with the last 30km being a bumpy dirt road, that winds and climbs through the mountains.   It has many canoe in only sites and 3 private lakes.  It is nestled amongst B.C.’s Cariboo  mountains and is truly beautiful.   

The park was not really designed for large RV’s and there was no way we were going to fit in the site we had booked, luckily the park wasn’t full and the third site we tried we were able to fit in.  The mosquitoes were the thickest we had seen and once set up, we quickly retreated to the RV, where we found the tech drawer in our entertainment Centre had not survived the bumpy drive in. 

We also discovered that there was absolute no cell signal, so there would be no blog writing for the next few days.
