Boston Bar Trip
April 10, 2009
We woke up at 3:30 in the morning to go on this trip to Boston Bar. We were determined to see some wildlife. We left Vancouver about 4:30 a.m. and we arrived in the Fraser Valley just as the sun was starting to come out for the day. We go over the Rosedale Bridge and went up to Boston Bar the backways going by Harrison Hot Springs. I was on the lookout for bears, and other animals down in the gulleys, and in the shore areas. We didn't see any bears.
We continue our way up to Boston Bar. We get there, and we see a buck as we were nearing Boston Bar. Then as soon as we arrived to Boston Bar we took the turn off to North Bend on the other side of the Fraser River.
We see some more deer family, and we continue down the Nahatlatch Forest Service road, but we were unable to get that far, about the 15 km marker,and we noticed a recent rockslide, so we attempted the rocks, but they were too much, and we didn't want to risk another slide happening, so we thought that the best would be to turn around. We then went and parked near the garbage area for a while to see if we could see any animals. I could see a cat of some sort running down the hill on the far side of the landfill.
After this, we then go to breakfast in Boston Bar, and then we decide to go to a regional park called Kawakawa Lake in Hope, and we took some pictures, and then we decided that we were going to look at Othello Tunnels at Coquihalla River Park. It was approximately 2km hike from trailhead to the end of the tunnels. Remember if you go into this park to bring a flashlight or some other source of light, as there is quite a bit of darkness! All be sure to look for wild animals as there are alot of areas and opportunity to see animals in this wild area.
Stay tuned for more news!!!
