Four days, 40 kilometres, no Vision members
Last week I did a four-day, 40-kilometre loop through the south Chilcotin, starting north of Gold Bridge at the Taylor Creek cabin and walking around Harrison Ridge in a ramble with two friends through spectacular alpine flowers, stunning views and countless insects. For two days we saw no one. On day three we saw a grizzly bear. I see a grizzly every year, whether I want to or not. No Vision members at all. This area is protected, after a fashion, by a park, but more work is needed to truly maintain its extraordinary beauty.
