Mixi blog post about the guy so long-awaited masterpiece written in the diary.
When we all went camping in the name of frigid camp at the end of October, I thought one more place to go because Ne 寒Kunakatta unexpectedly. The story I heard from a friend went camping together, Pemberton has a mountain spring just went from 2.3 hours, and it was very good. Is not that rather close to the hot springs campground yet. We immediately start planning a wild child.
I checked the WEB, Sloquet Hot Springs (Surokettohottosupuringusu) of the spring, the local people apparently Mr. Hotsprings It appears to be built by a Japanese named. It became impossible to go down the bridge in the flood Meager Creek (Migakuriku) seems to be the same people who created the hot springs (actually seems even more people rather than one built) . Japanese hot springs have made the Canadian mountains! This is not will not go.
Distance to Hot Springs and see the map not far from Vancouver, we must bypass to increase the mountain seem to be nearly five hours. This time, air is definitely negative. Sleeping in a tent in the snow in the worst case should not be. This time only three men to go wildly. Kengo, Yoji, and three to speak at 9:00 Saturday morning after leaving Vancouver.
Near my home about Superstore 2 Kg of beef chunks, as 2 kg of chicken wings, eggs, tomatoes and bought up, the first stopover for Yoji first to live in Whistler. "I like Ne only men, it is now trying to customary noisy" He told me, who put the Ford truck 3 Kengo went along the highway.
Arriving in Whistler surprised! The snow has piled up what a lot of you! "Hey, I go camping in the snow now we're really," she said, Yoji live mansion arrived. Be treated to spicy Korean noodles, had stolen several wood garage, and borrowed Yoji no house left. This time around 1:30 pm. Was scheduled before the sun was barely able to reach your destination.
The first problem was the wood. How many books, but borrowed from Yoji house, was cold to camp at the risk of having too much about. Whistler is a bundle of firewood saw $ 5.99. "Whistler Resort It's expensive. Pemberton would be cheaper if you go to." I have to go to Pemberton, is a whopping $ 8.99 here. "Vancouver city in the country at $ 4.99, why are you selling at $ 8.99??" I ask, though, when a supermarket clerk and said, "I'm in the camp must sell it." To proceed with optimism, and so is serious.
The second problem is the road. With no map, I was going to rely on only two papers note the direction of your destination Tta, Liliolet Lake should enter through the Lillooet Lake Forest Service Road near the road of hard to find. Where I went wrong indeed about 30 minutes to find a parked car in the lake (most cars are not that way at this point) is the way to hear the couple was riding "Harrison Lake on the other side of lead the way? never heard such a way, "it said. Where we see a few hundred meters and jealous that I go ahead anyway, the signal will stop and the car just a couple. When I stopped the car, "the road back from near certain Liliolet Lake Harrison Lake reminded of unpaved trail that leads to," it said.
"That's it!!!'s It!" Three delights. Shaking hands and say thank you thank fuck wife in kind, came back on the road. The idea was to follow. When I came in, "What is this road?" He feels "Liliolet Lake Lodge" because there was a big sign, "Oh, I'm way into the Lodge" When we got thinking, had passed without checking It was a mountain pass.
Return to the road, I looked at the sign "Liliolet Lake Lodge" was written with only. This is what I look around I really want a road, a small sign in the little more "Lillooet Lake Forest Service Road" character. . .
"I came to understand ー!" Continue to take heart and mind rattling dirt road. 4:00 pm at this point. The area was beginning to dim.
The track barely wide one, to go go the way I feel they are hopelessly falls to rid this world no such thing guardrail next to a cliff, of course. Too bad condition, MAX 40 kg, only about 10 km cronk sometimes spend several hours should take the road 80 kilometers total. Kengo been driving me thanks!
Around 5:30 pm After that is already dark. This road saw a car go came despite nearly a half hour is only 2.3 units. Meanwhile, the building was a hut near the entrance 1. The solitary had come to the real tame. "Looks like campsites are open" "Looks like wood still sell it," "Looks like she can be reached at all," and that reminded many fears, said the ban on negative thoughts, the three "early in camp to eat grilled meat - Na "" Lucky Did not you into a natural hot spring "and inspire each other to proceed.
The three struck fear was when I saw this secluded cemetery in the mountains. "Oh no?" I thought there is grave doubt. "What you made or lost someone to this mountain," and then proceed to think.
The graveyard where advanced several kilometers. Second shock was also less fear, less funny thing still going to continue to think about.
And. . .
The shiver down my spine, "in the world or had wander somewhere without??" I thought, when passing the dell is a cliff on the right, where such a great magnitude should never have Cross, and the first of dozens of buildings (houses) is a small village. . . This time I was terrified.
And not knowing what we go to sign "First Nation" was shown. "I see, First Nations (native aborigines) - in either village. Then you can see there a place like this. Is a graveyard that belongs to them. Na surprised." First Nations people are still beaten this I have been impressed with living in remote mountains.
According to two sheets of paper notes while checking the car mileage scale, Sloquet Creek finally arrived it was around 6:30 in the afternoon. The area of snow, rain and snow in the rain And the mess. . . Although the ban had a negative thought, indeed, "I do not think I can sleep in tents out here fresh??" I had a moment.
I was not surprised that people are doing their camp this season in such a place. Canadian dreadful. But RV (camper), big cars and tires at the track or trail design standard, not surprising in light armor had come And maybe that was their own. Gone to the camp manager and eventually to 買Enakatta wood.
