Canoeing in Slocan Lake
In July 2004 we ended up in British Columbia for a week. The photo shows Catherine just after noon on the 21st as we leave New Denver to paddle across Slocan Lake. Visible on the other side are some of the peaks of northern Valhalla Provincial Park, including the small glacier of Mount Denver. We pitched a tent at Wee Sandy Creek beach, spent the night, and on the following day paddled down to Nemo Creek beach, where we set up and spent another two nights before heading back to New Denver. A particular highlight was this waterfall on Nemo Creek:
I mention this, now almost ten years later, because of a just-happened, tragic New Denver canoeing mishap.
