Day 120 (Tuesday 18/08/09, NJJ) Saw Pyramid Lake and Patricia Lake. Drove for a few hours, stopped at Valemont but nothing of interest there so on to Blue River. Got to River Safari around 12.45pm. Did the 'safari'. Saw a bald eagle, ospreys but no bears as advertised. Had a short walk at Parberry Falls - ok. Checked into Blue River Campground. On to Eleanor Lake to relax lakeside in the sunshine, it was very hot and sunny. We left there at 4.30pm at which point it was 33º. Tent up at the campsite. Relaxed. Cooked pasta for dinner. Showers then bed. ... read more

Backcountry touring for snowboarders like ... read more

Today our goal was to find a helicopter and take a tour of the Rockies in it. We had a brochure and a phone number. But they weren’t answering - or were incredibly busy. So we drove. Valemount is back in British Columbia and the base of Mount Robson Helitours. It took us a while to find their operation, but it was in the obvious place right where there are two large helicopter company signs (neither which say Mount Robson Helitours). So we went in and the place was shut up tight with a few cars around and no-one in sight. Oh well… From our last tour through here, we met a guy called Mike Wiegele who ran a heli-skiing outfit and I had also seen what he’d done with the place since on a recent ... read more
