Stop two: Howes Lake

This was one of my favorite stops on our road trip, probably because it wasn’t raining. We found this rec site by chance as we decided to keep driving and skip the stop we had originally planned. Just after Lac La Hache we took a dirt service road that lead us about 10km in and ended at Hows Lake rec site. There were only about 6 spots or so but they were all big, very secluded and lake front. We set up camp in the evening sun, enjoyed some chips and salsa and beer, and pondered the road trip ahead.


Due to a clear forecast we decided to set up our new tent and try it out. Waking up to the  complete calm of the lake, loons singing in the distance, was a pretty good way to start a day. We had an awesome breakfast of eggs and turkey slices than hit the road again! We attempted to follow a back road all around the lake but the road became impassible. Joe was a little sad but he still managed to get Sally’s tires muddy so it counts for something.
