We leave our wonderful campsite overlooking the Summit Lake at Stone Mtn Provincial Park.

On the drive out of the park we see a Stone Sheep.

The drive today is short, about 50 miles. Our first stop today is at the Toad River Lodge to gas up and check out their collection of hats. Their ceiling is lined with thousands of baseball type hats. Very odd. But unfortunately the thing that is most memorable to us is that we pay $1.28 for a liter of diesel—that’s $4.86/gallon! Almost hitting the $5/gallon mark :-(

We see some incredible scenery as we traverse the northern part of the Rocky Mountains.

We stop at another beautiful lakeside campsite today: the shoreline of Muncho Lake BC Provincial Park (Strawberry Flats Campground). We’re the first ‘campers’ here so we get our pick of sites and select one with a beautiful view of the lake. We thought yesterday’s campsite had incredible scenery, but this site might be even more scenic.

We have another incredibly gorgeous view from our table window:

We spend the rest of the day relaxing by the lake….

And end the day with a campfire and s’mores. I try making a banana boat over the campfire for Jere and Joe (slice a long opening in an unpeeled banana and stuff it with chocolate chips and mini-marshmallows; wrap it with foil and roast), but I think we’re going to stick with s’mores for the rest of the trip :-) The roasted banana is NOT very yummy looking.
