Vancouver Magazine - - Travel Summer Getaways -

You’ll open your eyes to warm morn­ing light di‚ us­ing through the white walls of your “sa­fari-style” wall tent; hav­ing made it to Bear Paw camp yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, you can re­play the day of creek- cross­ings, hill- climb­ing and gen­eral won­der­ment as you made your way through Big Creek Park, down through Grave­yard Val­ley and up El­bow Pass to the head­wa­ters of Tyaughton Creek. Here your camp host awaits, with oat­meal and pan­cakes to fuel you for 27 kilo­me­tres and about a thou­sand me­tres of el­e­va­tion gain and loss through Deer Pass to a quin­tes­sen­tial Chilcotin view spot, then through tech­ni­cal ter­rain. Push a row­boat into Spruce Lake and see if you can’t sup­ple­ment din­ner with a fresh trout or two.
