down the Kokish Main dirt road that goes to the dam that supplies energy to the electrical plant on Beaver Cove Rd. Our destination – Bonanza Lake.
As we were kicking up dust behind our Forester, around the corner and I’ hollering BEAR, BEAR. I didn’t have my camera with me so no photos. He/She was going down into the canyon so we pulled up as close as we could get to the edge. He/she stopped on a couple of logs and looked back at me. So I talked to it. 🙂 He listened for a minute and turned and proceeded on his/her way. Guess conversation wasn’t her/his thing! What he/she didn’t know is that I had just mentioned to Dale that we might see a bear. God heard!
The first lake we came too is Ida Lake. There are about 5 camp sites on the beach of the lake. It was so peaceful here – about 12k off Beaver Cove Rd.
The next lake we came to – 18 more kilometers south of Ida Lake is Bonanza Lake. It is a very large lake. 9.1k long.
We couldn’t wait to see the temp of the water since we were having the hottest day since we have been here. We were thinking our swimsuits should have come with us. So Dale waded in. Then I had to try it.
Some one has a sense of humor! A couple of small roads lead to campsites on the lake. There was one at this place. It also looked like deer hunters use these campsites beside those coming to camp and enjoy the lake.
On another day we drove to Woss for breakfast and then to Woss Lake. Another beautiful lake.
As you can see, this was a cooler day and only our hands tested the temp of the water.
We have enjoyed seeing the surrounding sights around Telegraph Cove. Northern Vancouver Island is so pretty.
Life is very good – calm and peaceful. It helps to keep God’s peace close to the heart. Amazing.
