Helmcken Falls Winter 2015

Where the snow at? It was barely 0°C.

On the left, is Clearwater Springs Ranch, which is the fabulous luxury wilderness lodge/bed and breakfast we stayed at. It’s owned by Tanya and Kurt, who gave us advice on where to go around the park and really welcomed us into Clearwater. They offer a $45 gourmet dinner, which is totally worth the price. We had cranberry chicken with the most perfect fried potatoes:

Bonny, the resident watch dog, said goodbye to us as we left for Wells Gray Park:

But really, WHERE THE SNOW AT? The cone around the waterfall had collapsed a while ago, and the walls of the canyon were bare… I was slightly disappointed by this, but with all that’s been going on in my life, this didn’t faze me one bit. I’ll come back next year.
