Canoeing on Bowron Lakes

Last week I took Elia (age 12) with me as we canoed the 60km of the Bowron Lakes in the Caribbo region of BC.

Eight days: no cell phone, no computer, just hours of paddling, setting up camp each night, and good sleeping, good water, and good exercise. Well, mosquitoes too..

For a high tech geek, this was an almost perfect holiday, to remind me of what it is to be in nature 24 hours a day, in natural beauty, and where awareness and muscle are mor important that cleverness.
