At Loop Brook Campground.
The next day we headed to Hemlock Grove Boardwalk Trail for a “hike”. I had been to Hemlock Grove before, but the huge trees – up to 350 years old – never fail to amaze me. This trail is barrier-free and suitable for strollers and wheelchairs, but if your kids are like mine, they’ll run the whole 400 metres. Since they were done in minutes, we went through a second time to take some photos, then had a little snack near the parking lot and watched the ground squirrels. Some people must feed them, for the cheeky little critters were so bold as to dash under our table for crumbs!
|Balu Pass Trail, Glacier National Park of Canada|
BC’s Glacier National Park offers beautiful scenery, well appointed campgrounds, and a variety of trails to suit different ages and abilities, but without the crowds of other areas in the Rockies. The glaciers against blue skies are stunning! It’s a great destination on its own, or stopping spot en route to the Okanagan or Vancouver.
