Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

Lake Country

 Got to hope I don't get punted off... third time is a charm... We have been at a series of lakes since last I wrote. We stayed first at Pine Pass where we had a spectacular view of the northern lights and more truck trouble. Then went on to Carp Lake which has never seen a Carp. Michael processed veggie oil and I rode my bike to Rainbow Lake for this Dragon display. The shot above is from War Falls which is located near Carp.... All these lakes are natural and from the glaciers that dragged across these lands.
 We were able to swim at both Carp and Amanita Lakes. I won't say it was warm but the days were.
 We did a loop trail along the Macleod River and harvested blueberries (huckleberries) for the next day's pancakes.
 We paddled as far as we could in one day among Carp Lakes myriad islands. We met up with some very territorial beaver. 14 year old Sasha held her own though. It's been a nice 5-6 days but now the rain and cool weather has returned and we are in Prince George, onto the next leg of the journey.
