Today I tried to find my way up to Loon Lake (see it with Google Maps), but this is part of the University of BC’s Malcolm Knapp Ressearch Forest and the gate was closed. Everything is closed at 6 AM in this stupid area. Can’t get to Buntzen Lake, Belcarra, Alouette Lake, and a whole bunch of other places until 8 AM. I want to be on the water at sunrise!
So I turned around and headed back to the Alouette River, hoping to jump in at Neaves Road. There were no parking signs everywhere (seriously?? there’s nothing out here!) so I headed back to the usual parking spot at Harris Road. This isn’t a problem per se, but I really wanted to explore the upper reaches of the Alouette. Now I’d have to paddle 10 KM just to cross the bridge at Neaves. Forget it … I decided to head downstream and check out Pitt River.
A half-sunk motor and pump attached to the barge that sunken house was sitting on.
Another victim of … oh I don’t know, what causes people to let their stuff sink? Beer? Crack? Winning the lottery and forgetting that you have a boat that needs maintenance? You know, before your boat gets to this stage and you’re willing to let it sink, just call me, hand over the title, and I’ll happily adopt it. We’d love to own a boat.
