What a great day for hiking in Chutes Provincial Park. There is only one trail in the park but if you do the whole trail it is 11km. We only did about 3kms but took our time enjoying the waterfalls that make up Chutes. Very few people were hiking (I suspect because it was about 25 degrees many were at the beach) and so the trip was quiet and beautiful.
You could notice that the waters ran over more of the exposed rock than it runs over now. Water levels of ages gone past were, I’m sure, much higher. Notice that in the picture below the rocks looks like water has smoothed them out and created a wave pattern.
After such we took the bikes out for a ride through the booming (not) town of Massey. The park is situated right against the northern subdivision of the small town. Some very nice properties right on the water and some properties that needed some love. It was a nice ride which took us just under an hour.
Around 6:00 Dad was able to join us on his way back home from a trip to B.C. It was nice to sit around the fire and talk, roaring sausages on the fire.
Our next day was a driving day. We beat the rain out of Chutes PP and raced it all the way to Arrowhead PP near Huntsville. Since it was wet and we were not able to explore the park, we headed into Huntsville for dinner and to get propane. Hopefully our 649 ticket that we bought will be more lucky since the propane was finicky getting hooked back up, the TV we brought wasn’t the one with the DVD player in it and Bud’s data on his phone is getting maxed out. Oh well, no harm done in the end. Hopefully we don’t hit many more rainy days but if you have to have one on a trip a driving day is a good time.
Tomorrow’s weather looks much better so stay tuned for Arrowhead PP adventures.
