  • Day14

    Alpine Meadows

    May 31, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Sunny and cool after a comfortable if unassuming night in Sun Peaks and back down the road to the 5. Heading north the road was quiet for the most part, though a construction area delayed us 5 mins or so. Stopped briefly at Little Fort then North Thompson Park for a short stroll.
    Arriving at Clearwater we struggled to work out where things were as it’s so spread out. We did discover our accommodation was some 20k out so turned round and finally found the main amenities and eventually the Wells Gray visitor information! Excellent warm samosas with a tarragon sauce from Buy Low for lunch. The i provided maps and advice and we decided to head north for a bit to the first set of (spectacular) falls on the map. This also had the benefit of a Magnum and hot dog if we had required. Spahat Falls thunder down some 60 m through old volcanic flows though the valley is some 300 m below. We did a short hike to Spaden lookout. More tomorrow.
    It was time to make the quest for our accommodation in earnest. Back past the Hog n Hop and then south over the restless river and railroad. We picked up the road and followed the sign that indicated 20k. For a while we followed the railroad then climbed a bit and 8k out the road became unsealed. A little further up we found three vultures on a roadkill. Our lodge is in a beautiful setting overlooking lake Hallamore. There are hummingbirds a loon on the lake and reportedly bears. Though we haven’t seen one yet.

    And then we saw a bear, where, here!

    June 1, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    After our gourmet supper with Fern Walk 2016 Pinot Noir we thought a wander to the jetty in order. The evening had turned a bit grey and a strong breeze was coming off the lake. We heard coyote calling in the hills. We were hopeful of seeing a bear on the meadow but nothing doing.
    Returning to our shack I spotted a small dark shape in the distant grass which as we got closer was moving about in bear like fashion near to lodge 203. It wasn’t very large and was busy munching in the long grass. We watched for quite a while joined by the occupants of 203 from their bedroom window.
    This quite completed our stay at Alpine Meadows.

    Tag 16 - Jasper - Clearwater

    July 4, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Lange Fahrt bis Clearwater, ca. 4h auf den Straßen Kanadas verbracht. Nahe Clearwater erwarteten uns dann aber 3 wundervolle Naturgewalten, Helmcken Falls, Spahats Creek Falls und Dawsons Falls.
    Danach ging es weiter zu unserer Unterkunft mitten in der Einöde, in einer Ungebung die sich "Heart of bear land" nennt, zum Alpin Meadow Resort. Super schöne Anlage, unsere Unterkunft war eine extrem gemütliche Blockhütte an einem kleinen romantischen See gelegen. Auf dem Weg dahin sind wir auch glatt wieder einen Schwarzbär begegnet, der aber ganz schnell reißaus genommen hat.Read more
