So far, we have been traveling sort of based on the advice of locals and this has led us to some very pretty places with some very funny and creative names. Strawberry Point, Function Junction and Furry Creek to name a few. Even the highway has a way more interesting ring to its name than the boring A1 for example, in France. No, here they call it the Sea-to-Sky Highway, who does not drive this road with a smile on his face ;)
Take a note Europe, you can learn a lot from this!
Anyway, this way of traveling had led us to the most beautiful hike we have done here so far: Joffry lakes, three glacier lakes that are tucked away in a huge rainforest. The lowest one sits at an elevation of 1200m and the top one is adding 1600m high. The trail is very well kept and the three of us enjoyed every little bit of it!
Driving-wise it seems there are only two kind of roads in this country; the perfectly build highways or the forest dirt roads. There seems to be nothing in between, which is kind of funny for us, because on the one we can drive the normal maximum speed of 90 km/h and the other, well let's say our speed is topped at 20km/h.
The biggest advantage of these dirt roads is that there are a lot less people driving them and you get to enjoy the quite nature to the fullest once you have parked your van somewhere.
Canada, by the way is also full of campgrounds that are kept by the Canadian government and a lot of them are free of charge :)!
Well, that's it for now, on our way to the Powder Highway and the Rockies!! Excited!
