Thanksgiving weekend(Canada) starts Oct. 11-14. We haven't been in the Outfitter since June so before putting the TC to bed underneath that big white blanket, thought we should head out on a hiking trip to Glacier and Mt. Revelstoke NP's east of us to try and track down some snow and alpine photos.

Found out that all of the campsites both for provincial and national parks had been closed for the season and all of the portable bridges across the creeks had been removed due to potential avalanche damage but bush camping is something we do always so not a problemo.

Not going to be easy at this time of the year to get up high onto the glaciers.

Just settling in for a cozy evening by Revelstoke Lake. No one around for miles.

Is that something Canadians tell people from Vegas, "The snow acts like an insulator so your boots won't get cold"?

Looks like a beautiful area. Can't do it next year, too many weddings in the family (3), but I really want to get up there in the near future.

Nothing like having the place all to yourself. Very nice, thank you.

That and the fact that it is a dry cold, as if that makes any difference but it sounds good!

I grew up in Calgary and ran around in jeans and running shoes for most of the winter in snow up to my knees. The snow was too cold to melt. It was a dry cold and as long as you kept moving you did not feel the cold. We moved to the Okanagan and then the coast and that was a wet cold and It felt cold. The snow was mostly wet and soaked thru your clothes. The moisture draws the heat out of you faster than the dry cold air.

Hey dadwolf2,

We would welcome you to come up to BC= Bring Cash. Go to the lower mainland(Vancouver) if you want to shop and do esoteric stuff.

If you want to camp, which is the rest of the province, now you have an area as big as California, Oregon, Washington combined.

Last time I was in Vegas, a local asked me where I was from. "Canada " I said.

"Is it really true that it,s cold all year and everyone plays ice hockey?" "Damn straight," I said. "Do you know anything about hockey." "Ya, I watch the Phoenix Coyotes sometimes."
"Well, up in Canada, we can,t afford indoor rinks so we have to play on ponds. To make extra money from the fans, in between period, we auger holes in the ponds and let the fans ice fish until it,s time to start the game again"
Bit of a pause while the Lost Wages guys thinks about this for awhile.
"What were they catchin?"

Man, I love going south.

Dave

I grew up next to a farmer in Michigan. The kids in the small town played hockey on the farmers slurry pit with tree branches for hockey sticks. [emoticon] We didn't have any fans!! [emoticon]

BC is the Vegas motto too so it's only fair I bring some back up north!
