Definitely a different vibe on a long weekend- people pulling U-turns on the main road over a double solid yellow line in a 80km/h zone, trailers parked ON the FSR, not even in a pullout or onContinue reading “Solo Saturday”
Riverside Recreation Site is tucked off to the side of Chilliwack Lake Road. It backs onto the Chilliwack River and other than the occasional road noise, is a beautiful serene place! This spot would be great for group camping as well, as it is quite open.
If you come explore the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, be sure to add this site to your list of camping spots!
Bench FSR is one of my favourite drives, but in the Fall with the leaves changing colours it is even more beautiful.
I love the views along this drive and honestly come up here whenever I can.
Mother Daughter camping on Bench FSR. Our friends had set up camp and as I drove by I recognized their utility trailer and stopped to say hi! They invited me to join with my family so I went home and asked everyone if they wanted to go. Only my daughter wanted to so we packed up the tent and the camping bins, and we hit the road.
I started from the Ryder Lake side so my daughter could enjoy the views along the way and before we knew it, we had arrived!
Setup didn’t take long at all and we enjoyed our one night by the river.

I am a busy Mom of two kids, so I fit the adventure in when I can.
Even if it’s just 20 minutes to sit by the lake before I have to head back home, it’s worth it to me to have that reset and recharge.
This last week was a long and stressful one. I had multiple calls from WCB, my employer, and many appointments throughout the week. I knew I needed to get out and clear my head after such a busy week and lots of changes. Once I got up and as I was savoring my morning coffee,Continue reading “Rainy Saturday Explorations”
Allison Pool Recreation Site is a small campground located off Chilliwack Lake Road, here in Beautiful British Columbia. It is a favorite fishing spot, and can be quite busy in the summer.
The old Thurston Correctional Facility was closed many years ago and then the buildings were torn down. Mostly concrete foundations and the odd set of concrete steps remain. Located off Chilliwack Lake Road in Beautiful British Columbia, one can hope this place helped heal some people while here.
Forest Service Roads lead to many beautiful destinations, but they also have industrial vehicles working on them.
