Day 21: Fresh Caught Fish for Dinner (Horse Lake, BC 04-Sep-13)

Having been on the move every day but one, I wanted to spend two nights in a few places to relax on the return home. I really liked Horse Lake, near 100 Mile House, and so came back. The day was spent drying out my gear, sitting in the sun, reading a book, and chatting with people.

I was chatting with Doug, who used to work in a Canadian prison and has his cat Thom on a leash, when Rick came by and asked if we wanted two 2lb Lake Trout. We cleaned them and cooked them with lemon and onion over the fire, drank beer, and watched the stars. What a phenomenal way to spend my last night in Canada. Thank you Rick and Doug.

Day 2&3 (Seattle and Horse Lake, British Columbia 16-17-Aug-13)

Yesterday was painful. 550 miles and 6 major, stop (and not so much) go traffic and a clutch that felt like it weighed 10lbs. It was more than made up for by a phenomenal dinner with my cousin in Seattle.

Today was glorious riding. I met a lovely couple in a car that are avid motorcyclists. I joined them for lunch and they insisted on picking up the tab – this is why one travels. Thank you Jack and Kaddee. I got lucky with a camp site 8ft from the water on Horse Lake, with sounds of loons in the evening.
