British Columbia!!!!
After wondering for weeks if we would actually be able to cross the border with our passport-less friend, we finally successfully made it into sunny, hot, British Columbia. Only able to fit a little over a week of BC time into our schedule, we made best use of our time. There was a day of skiing on the Blackcomb Glacier in the morning and paddling the Cheakamus in the afternoon and another day that involved paddling 3 different creeks (Cheak, Callaghan, & Ashlu). Then we were off to Skoomumchuck Narrows. Unfortunately we spent most of our time watching a greened-out wave, but it was an incredible place to visit and the 2 surfs each day were certainly worth the trip.

Here is a short video that Dave Fusilli made of our trip.

We wanted to keep it as a pet, but by now it might not have been such a good idea.
