Earl the Llama guarding West Harrison


This guy was literally in the middle of the road blocking our way!

He eventually moved to the side and we slowly passed him, only for him to start chasing my truck!!

Turns out he is a well cared for resident of the logging camp & has a horse friend there too!

He just likes to wander but knew exactly where his boundaries were! Once we got to a certain point down the road, he pulled over to munch on some greenery and let us pass.

First time meeting a llama up a mountain!

Update: It turns out that he is a well cared for Resident of the logging camp down the road and has a horse friend too! It also turns out he was just called Llama, but they liked our nickname of Earl so they decided to name him Earl!!

He has been spotted by many people over the years and definitely adds some character to the mountainside! Nobody expects to see a llama 20 miles up a FSR – at least I didn’t!

I am a 34 year old Mom of two, married to my wonderful husband living in Beautiful British Columbia. My kids are 9 and 12 and pretty much complete opposites! My daughter loves to Road Trip like her Mama and my son is more ‘are we there yet?’ From 8 hour road trips to see family, ferries to the island or just a good old drive up a dirt road, I’ll have tips to keep the kids entertained, food to pack and road reports! We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful place surrounded by mountains and rivers and endless trails to explore! Follow me and see how I maintain my sanity on these trips!
