Last summer I found a hidden gem 8 kms upstream from the usual launching point at Harris Road on the Alouette River. At the end the river thins and becomes crystal clear, with pools of large trout circling below, wildlife everywhere (coyotes, deer, herons, ducks, geese, beavers, bald eagles, and believe it or not sea otters!) The length of the trip is well worth it for the peace and quiet up there.

Anita and I just had the fortune of rare night: A babysitter. We went to go see the new Star Trek movie, and I am happy to officially declare this the greatest movie ever made.
Did a little paddling this morning up the Alouette River to Pitt River, then over into De Boville Slough on the other side. Pics and stuff here.
Taking Erik for his first canoe ride this morning, just taking a minute in the garage to get things prepared. I’ve been looking forward to this day since we first found out Anita was pregnant. He’s got a paddle and lifejacket and we’re all set to go.
We’re back! And here are the photos.
