Canada 2017 – Valemount to Wells Gray Provincial Park

2nd July, 2017.

With another early start, we continued south to the town of Clearwater where we stopped at the Visitor Centre to ask about the road north to Wells Gray Provincial Park where we hoped to camp for a couple of nights.

A quick stop on the way to Clearwater.

We were advised that camping at Clearwater Lake was fully booked but that Pyramid Campground would have sites available so after fuelling up we headed north. Shortly after entering the Provincial Park we turned off to have a look at Spahats Falls just a short walk from the carpark.

It was lunchtime when we returned from the Falls walk so we decided to get a sausage each from this stand owned by a Belgian chap. We had quite an interesting chat with him and also a young Australian couple who were also waiting for their lunch.

Next stop was the campground where there were quite a few suitable sites. After selecting one and paying our fees we decided to backtrack to see a waterfall we had passed along the way.

The river thundered beneath the one lane bridge but we had to drive further back to a path that would take us to the falls themselves.

We settled back at camp for a quiet evening but unfortunately, the mosquitoes were plaguing us and, even worse, had got into the motorhome making for a very uncomfortable night.
