Spending my time between BC and Southern Ontario/Great Lakes USA. Most of the Rec sites

I'll post three locates for the guessing game for fun;

#3 looks like San Joseph bay. North Vancouver island. Far right side of the beach.

Could be wrong on that though...

The beach is San Josef Bay, thanks to its remoteness it is a real treat to visit.

Ha, knew I recognized those rocks! It's a really beautiful area, been up there roughly ½ a dozen times. did you make it out to Nels bight and the Cape Scott lighthouse?

We went out on a spur of the moment out to the lighthouse for a night than back quickly to San Joe for a couple of nights recovery from the big walk in/out.

Growing up on the island our family would drive up, float all our gear down the creek and camp for a week on the beach - in the 70's we spent days there in the summer without seeing anyone. Even on our early season visit we only saw 2 other tents. Been a nice summer for myself that working away, hiked Cape Scott, Tatchu, and just did the convinant Wild Side trail this past weekend.

Well #1 picture is dealt with. I'd like to know if #3 is in Quebec? Good to see some guesses Kevin! The first one was easy for anyone who has been there.

HMCS Ojibwa

Disappointed. Today was to tour the first city pictured with several resident motorcycle photographers, but that was cancelled due to forecasted thunder showers.

Well Kevin I guess no one from Ontario looks @ this post or if they do can't recognize the location. Please tell us where it is.

I'll add another Rec site to the collection from my trip this summer. Hopefully you have inspired others to post a few pictures of sites they may have camped.
Cariboo lake is another of the lakes and Rec Sites along the Whatshan – Mosquito – Fostall FSR's between Needles and Galena bay south of Revelstoke. I did not camp here merely observed for future reference. It looks like a nice area with flat camp sites and easy boat launching. The lake reportedly has rainbow trout and brook trout though I can't confirm either. I also heard from campers @ other lakes that the mosquitoes can be unbearable early in the year. I approached Cariboo lake from the south from Mosquito FSR. This was a monumental climb with several grades well over 20%. I was in first gear a lot of the time and even had to stop once to let the van cool down. I have added a copy of the Route from Mosquito as well as a portion of the road grade. The little guy on the route is the location marked on the elevation picture. The road to the north, which is a more gradual climb, joins up with the Mosquito FSR .

Pickupd the van today, went for a road trip to break it in. Went great aside from it not shutting down when we reached our destination. An hour of driving later, and one phone call, we learned that we need to have the headlights off to shut the van off. News to us!
