We went on this trip on Good Friday, which was Friday April 2, 2010. We left on this trip about 8 a.m. in the morning, and decided to head to the Fraser Valley region namely to the Chilliwack area. This area can be very beautiful, but it was quite cool, as well as snow showers off and on around the Chilliwack Lake area.
As soon as we got to the area of the Trans-Canada Highway, that we could turn off onto, which was the Vedder Crossing, we got to go on a fair stretch of road, passing the entrance to the road of the ever popular Cultus Lake Provincial Park, and we continued on until we got to the fork in the road, which one way would lead into Downtown Vedder, and then the other direction led us to the Chilliwack Lake/River area.
We went down the long road, in order to view some of the lake. Along the way, there are many recreational sites that are easily accessible when the weather is better, but at this moment in time, it was very cold, and very windy. This road took us past the monumental Mt. Sleese plane crash site, as well as one of the DND branches. There are numerous forest service roads that are in the area too, but due to the weather, we were only able to tackle a couple of them.
