This is a continuation of my last camping weekend post here, from September 2013
After a leisurely breakfast in Lillooet BC I started my trek home. I took the Bridge of the 23 Camels to the other side of the Fraser River and headed south on Hwy 12
Traffic was non-existant on this Friday morning and I had the road all to myself
There is supposed to be longhorn sheep on this section so I just meandered on my way hoping to catch a glimpse of them but I only saw two little deer on the side of the road
The road followed the Fraser River for a few miles and then headed inland over rolling hills and farmland . There was really no where to stop, so I just kept rolling and after an hour or so I had arrived in Lytton
This place has the reputation of being the hottest place in BC during the summer and is often the hottest spot in Canada
Even though we were here in mid September it was a fairly warm day and I had to get out of my riding gear as I walked around town
As I walked past the Town Hall I noticed the Farmer's Market sign. What luck to be here on a Friday morning around 10:30am
I wasn't sure what they would be selling
so I walked about looking around as they were setting up their tables
Most were local artisans displaying their crafts.
And others were selling fresh rabbits
or fresh chicken. I mean, how much fresher can they be ?
The visitor's centre is just right of the Church. The View caught my eye, so I stopped
It appears to be a restaurant at one time but long abandoned. I walked around the side on the rotting walkway and this is what you see
That elevated section of roadway must be new as it wasn't here the last time I visited . It is time to get rolling
and I take the Fraser Canyon down to Hope and decided to divert to Lougheed Highway where I ended up at Harrison Hot Springs to grab a snack
but first I ride down to the main beach area
In the background you notice the famous Harrison Hot Springs Resort Hotel
and to the North you see Harrison Lake which is cold because it is glacier fed
I am getting better at having meals by myself. I haven't had Mulligatawny soup for a while so that is what I ordered
Here was my soup and sandwich special. Because I live in the heart of the City it took me about 3 hours to get home taking the slow route.
I lucked out with the weather. It was to be the last warm summer-like weekend of the Season
