Birthday Road Trip Day 8 (the end)


October 29th, 2011
Departing Destination: Bear Glacier
Clue:

A shelter in a storm, a candle in the night.
Yearned for from afar, dulled by morning's light
Though built of wood or rock,
Can be moved around the world
A part of you and me,
Wherever we may be.

What am I?

Home!


What a sweet poem to end the trip with and lead us home. It has been a fantastic Birthday tour. I am super lucky. A few hundred more kilometres to drive and a few more adventures to be had.
 
The view from our campsite. Not too shabby.










All packed up and ready to go, and I decide that I should try to feed seeds to the grey jays.  Unfortunately, this time I was unsuccessful.









The first stop of the day was a secret little waterfall.  A short walk through the woods led us here.  What a neat spot.  Ducky liked it so much that he jumped out of my pocket.  It took us a few minutes to find him hiding under a bush. (yes, it was a geocache that led us here).







Today was a day of driving and geocaching.  We departed the mountains and drove across the Nechako plateau towards home.  We stopped to find the micro geocache hidden here, and had to take some pictures since there were muggles around.  We never did find the cache.




Dusk, and we're almost home.  But we had to stop for one last geocache before it got too dark.  And wouldn't you know it - we stopped at a cairn (man-made pile of stones) whose centre stone came from the castle where King Arthur of Camelot was said to be born.  What a cool piece of history to end an amazing trip with.
