Swans of Lonesome Lake
Swans of Lonesome Lake:  [?] . You might remember a book called "The Caruso of Lonesome Lake" where Ralph Edwards saved the BC Trumpeter swans from extinction from the 1920's to the 1950s. It was almost required reading for our generation in elementry school in the 70s. Edwards cabin burnt down in the BC fires of 2004. [M | C

Another child of the Freedom Road Series has been born! Charlotte's Web will take you to the environs of Charlotte Lake, a jewel of the West Chilcotin. The caches published today (130 of them) will lay the base line of a large trail that will lead to campgrounds, swimming areas and glorious vistas. Come see where it will lead you.

Don't pass on the chance to travel the Freedom Road (150 caches), The Beef Trail Bypass (140 caches), The Kappan Mountain Road (105 caches) or the Cookie Crumbs (11 caches) .... all along roadways and interconnected. There is also the Tatla Lake Quad Trails (113 caches) for the more adventurous. Sprinkled in and around these trails are 40 -50 caches with their own unique flavor.

See you in the West Chilcotin!

Good questions.

This is the wilderness. Mosquitos come in early June, taper to a manageable level mid July, and are almost non-existent in mid August, not to return until next year. There are bears (infrequent, but there) moose, and other forest creatures you might expect to find. All fun to photograph, but in need of your respect.

If you were to visit the link to the info page on the Freedom Road Series caches (or the Beef Trail Bypass caches), you will find all kinds of info about safety, local conditions, how to approach the caches, and local cacher etiquette. There are some great pictures in the gallery there that were taken in the area. Any other questions, concerns, or comments can be directly sent to WChilcotinCachers @ gmail.com.

We would like to see you here. You will leave with a smile on your face and memories you won't forget.

Cache safely,

R W A

One last question: How early does the snow fly in your neck of the woods? What's the latest you would recommend planning a visit to cache any of these "trails"?

While weather is never a sure thing, usually snow doesn't arrive until October. Right now, the weather is sunny and cool. September is usually one of the most pleasant months ... cool nights and sunny days. It can (and has) dipped to 0C at night, and be in the 20's in the afternoon. For a real time look at the weather, visit images.drivebc.ca/bchi...w/139.html ,
which is the highway cam that actually points to the Freedom Road Series #1 cache.

Weather reporting (finding forecast and conditions) on the web can be problematic as the readings can be misleading. The reporting stations are a Williams Lake and Bella Coola, both of which are a long ways away (in different directions) and have distinctly different environmental situations.

After mid-October, there is a greater likelihood of weather concerns.

Again, right now there are perfect caching conditions: cool weather, lots of sunshine, no bugs, light traffic. It doesn't get much better than that.

Cache safely,

R W A
