We took the motorhome over to Christina Lake and stayed in the Texas Creek Campground which is a provincial park.  Since BC seniors pay half price after Labour Day, it cost us just $13.50 per night.  It was nice and quiet.
We took the car and day tripped three days in a row doing a long series of geocaches strung out over the length of the Old Cascade Rossland Highway which is all gravel logging road.  Once we got past where the active logging was, there was very little traffic.  We went in from the Christina Lake end the first two days then from Rossland the last day as we were so much closer to that end.  I picked up 215 caches over the three days and had about 19 that we couldn't find,  
We packed up and came home on Friday because we had an email from our furniture supplier who said our table had finally arrived in their warehouse and the salesman thought he would be able to meet us in Princeton Sunday morning saving us driving all the way down to Port Moody near Vancouver.  As it happened, we did meet up in Princeton and we finally have our table and chairs.  So great to give up the folding chairs and folding table we've been using since May!

This Chipmunk greeted me down along the lakeshore our first evening in Texas Creek

I spotted this Sulphu

r Butterfly on a Knapweed flower when we stopped for lunch our first day caching.

Christina Lake in the evening

Lots of these Common Harebells blooming in the mountains where we were caching

The Bracken ferns were starting to put on a colour show up in the mountains

We walked by this tree in the campground our first night and a bear had been digging at the base.  There was a tiny hole about waist high that had wasps coming and going.  When I walked past our last morning, the bear had torn the tree apart and gobbled the nest.  There were a couple of wasps dazedly flying about.

What's left of the nest, shows how powerful those bears are!

After taking delivery of our table and chairs and secured the load for the drive home.
