Mother Daughter Camping By The River

On Thursday, we were invited to visit or join my daughter’s friend’s family on their camping trip by the river. We were going to pack for camping in case we decided to stay, and then I decided it would be silly to pack everything and not stay, so we made a decision to camp. WeContinue reading “Mother Daughter Camping By The River”

Rapids Recreation Site – One Peaceful Night By the River!

Located in the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, off of Chilliwack Lake road, is a gorgeous Recreation Site located on the banks of the river. Fall asleep listening to the sounds of the river, the calls of birds and the wind rustling the trees.
Popular for dirt bikers and quads on the weekends, you can ride right out from the campground, making it convenient but also less peaceful.

Green Lake 2021

Our first time visiting Green Lake as a family was in 2015 and it was the opposite weather from this time.

McDonald Park Dark Sky Preserve is a beautiful setting, both during the day and at night. This park is located on No. 3 Road, just over the dyke, making for easy walking access to the Sumas River dyke trail.

I have explored Mount Woodside several times, and I enjoy the gorgeous views along the way every time!
