Michelle and I, along with my adventure pups headed out to Nakusp, BC for a weekend of relaxation and girl time, from July 22-24 . I had a half day at work Friday, so as soon as I got off we headed straight for the Shelter Bay Ferry terminal. We had no time to stop on the way out, as we were on a time crunch to make it to the Ferry on time (which we did, yay!). Our original plan was to get to Box Lake and find a camp spot for the weekend. We did not know that there was some sort of festival going on that weekend in Nakusp, so EVERY dang camp spot and hotel was booked. I kid you not. It was terrible, we tried setting a tent up in a random spot, in the middle of the night in the rain, and basically said “fuck it” and packed up and headed to town to try and find something, ANYTHING. With some luck, we managed to find a nice room at the K2 Rotor Lodge. Reasonably priced, and they accepted dogs. Bullet dodged there! We decided to stay here for the weekend, we didn’t want to spend the whole time searching for a unsearchable camp spot.
Since we had a ton of camping food, and wood. We decided to head to Mcdonald Creek Provincial Park, located South of Nakusp along the Arrow Lakes. We threw sticks for the dogs in the lake, built a fire, cooked us a mean meal and had a couple drinks. No one was around, which was weird. Everywhere else was ridiculously busy haha. It was nice and relaxing. We packed up shortly after.
We packed our things up shortly after eating some grub and headed back to the hotel room to drop the pups off. Tired, Wet and Sand full in fur. We were off to relax in one of the local natural hot springs with a couple more bevvies in our bellies.
Saturday being our last night here in Nakusp. We decided to head out to Sandy Beach. To take some photos of the night sky. We had to beat the Full Moon before it peaked over the Kootenay Mountains!
Sunday was our last adventure day. We had planned to hit up another local hot spring, but it was already almost 30 degrees outside we weren’t to keen on sitting in a hot spring on a hot day. We will be back to lounge in it another weekend.. Our first stop on the way back was Sutherland Falls located in Blanket Creek Provincial park just outside of Revelstoke, BC. We tired to hit up every little stop off that we haven’t yet been too on the way back, we were in no rush to get home. We stopped off at the Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk, Hemlock Grove Boardwalk, Bear Creek Falls (which is now officially closed due to unstable conditions), and Moraine Lake.
