We met at the Petro-Can west of town
14 Chapter members arrived driving 11 vintage and 3 daily drivers

    
At 9 am it was time to hit the road
It was a nice drive up the the back road to Lac Le Jeune Provincial Campsite
 
We made a pretend coffee stop
and a chance to check the rest rooms

Parking lot over looking the lake

The boys comparing notes


Guess where Don & Ken were
?

From the lake it was a short drive to Logan Lake where we regrouped at the tourist center
for a picture of ur cars in front of the huge dump truck and shovel from the mine
   
After leaving Logan Lake we stopped at the view point over looking the Highland Valley Copper mine

Steve & Susan Bell along with Bernard & Maryanne King can be seen here reading
the information about the mine.
     
After our brief stop it was time to head off down the long steep hill to Ashcroft
We ate our picnic lunches in Ashcroft at their Millennium Park.
   
The weather was gorgeous and having lunch under the shade tress was most welcomed

Leaving Ashcroft we drove through
Cache Creek passing Cariboo Sam as we headed north to Horsting Farmers Market
They have everything there from flowers,
produce to a bakery & cafe  
They do have a reputation for their delious sandwiches, pies and cinnamon buns.
The last leg of our day trip was the the 31 km drive to Walhachin.



 







On the way into Walhachin you have to cross over
the South Thompson River Bridge

              and pass some of the fields before entering town
We parked on the edge and looked over the South Thompson River

Great day but time to head home
