A/C on a Hot Summer Drive

Gwillim Lake Provincial Park
"Winds whispering through the pine forests, waves lapping at the shoreline, Gwillim Lake Provincial Park provides a peaceful outdoor experience. Set in the picturesque Rocky Mountain Foothills on Highway 29, a half-hour's drive from Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge and the massive Northeast Coal development, visitors can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, fishing and a viewpoint that provides a panoramic vista of the superb Rocky Mountain scenery."

Yesterday Hubby & I joined Dad & Mom in their lovely Jeep Campass and drove out to Tumbler Ridge, BC and then on to Gwillim Lake Provincial Park. My brother, Sis-in-law and two kids are camping at the park and that was a good enough excuse for us to drive out on such a lovely hot summer day to go see them. I had never been to Gwillim lake before and would have happily joined my Nephew and Niece in n the water had I known it would be so nice for swimming :)

It was a nice surprise to see you guys! Did you stop at the viewpoint, and could you see those mountains like in your photo? We didn't see any mountains from the campground, and those mosquitoes drove us crazy after you left! Nice to be home in our beds with no mosquitoes to keep us awake all night long!
