Solo Camping at Skwellepil Creek Recreation Site

I decided to get out and go camping for just one night, prior to going in for my knee surgery. With no clear outcome from my knee scope, I felt the need to “get out while I could” in case I came out of surgery with more pain. I knew I wanted to get outContinue reading “Solo Camping at Skwellepil Creek Recreation Site”

Solo Saturday

I took my fur baby Zola for a drive down Chilliwack Lake Road to Bench FSR this afternoon. 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”

Chilliwack to Quesnel!

My husband called and said he got off from work early, let’s leave for our road trip a day early! We arranged for our friend to look after our animals, packed a few things, and hit the road. 3 Days, 1300kms, and a whole lot of fun! We laughed a lot, and memories were made.Continue reading “Chilliwack to Quesnel!”

Date Night Vancouver Style

My husband was gifted Free Canucks Tickets for Saturday’s game, so we arranged an overnight at Grandma’s for our kiddos and went into planning mode! A friend of mine toldContinue reading “Date Night Vancouver Style”

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.

McDonald Park Dark Sky Preserve

McDonald Dark Sky Preserve is a beautiful spot to go for a walk or run. The dyke goes in both directions and you can walk for quite a ways.
This park is also used by astronomers and sometimes hosts special events when there are meteor showers predicted.
Overall it is a really nice park with a small play area, picnic tables, and flush toilets!

Twenty Mile Bay – April Version!!

20 Mile Bay is a gorgeous Recreation Site that has camping and a day use area that sits right on Harrison Lake.
It’s a long drive full of beautiful views and one I highly recommend. The forestry road is a bumpy one, but I have seen all sorts of trailers hauled down that road.

Exploring the old Thurston Correctional Facility Grounds – Chilliwack River Valley Series

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.
