There are multiple streamers of smoke in the air from the BC wildfires. There are wildfires all through to Saskatchewan I hear.
I thought for a minute I had lost my eye cover for sleeping. I tore my backpack apart and found it. The lights get dimmed but not enough for me.
It’s a shame it’s dark before we see the Fraser River Gorge. We’ll wake up to mountains though.
Currently waiting to board the ferry back to Vancouver. Tonight I take a train to Winnipeg, about a 2 day ride. I spent last night bar hopping with my nephew. Lots of great bars in Victoria. If you get a chance go to the Bengal Lounge in the Empress Hotel and the Vista 18 in the Chateau Victoria. The 18th floor view at night is spectacular.
I’ve never been so happy to wake up at 4:30 a. m. Unbelievable vistas along the whole valley through Hope and beyond. Views too big to capture. The peaks in full sun. The incredible tunnels through solid rock. The swirling waters.
It’s not the Grand Canyon but come back in a few million years.
