Welcome to our ranch near Canada's west coast in Beautiful British Columbia's West Chilcotin mountain region. Where calling the vet means hollering back at the house to bring your kit, new friendships are formed from the back of a horse and true fun for a five year old is getting a machete for Christmas. Where 'cutting the dinks off' has a totally different meaning than what first comes to mind, Muck Boots are a household name, a hand shake still means something and the coffee is always on.

Downton Valley

By my calculations, we should be enjoying our second night in the stunning Downton Valley at the moment, and planning on heading to Itcha Lake tomorrow.
We will be eating a delicious pot roast slowed cooked on the fire all day and hopefully it is warm enough to jump in the very 'refreshing' lake near camp!  
Weather permitting, we will have visited Goat Pass and the headwaters of the Corkscrew Basin and had some excellent views of Mount Downton.  Most likely we've seen a whole bunch of goats in the valley, and caribou too!  

Hope you are all enjoying your day as much as we are!  


Cheers from my favorite office.  :)

Another great post. Really nice to be able to click on pic to enlarge. Good to see in "Downton Valley" photo that your young dog is still keeping up.

Thanks, Gary
