I ask this 'cause I'm getting closer to that summer when amassed vacation time + a really good absurdly old van = my long-planned, long trip from the U.S. East Coast to Northern California, up to B.C., and then eastward to the Canadian Maritimes, and then down the U.S. East Coast back home. Distracting myself from wobbly frosh papers, I was Google Earthing around B.C. The farthest west in Canada I've been is to Lake Superior's northeastern shore. But shazam, does B.C. look far more beautiful than I had even assumed. So many coastal islands of so many types and sizes, and so many lakes, which I had associated, stupidly, with Manitoba/Ontario/Quebec more than the far West. So I'm revising my plans and soliciting advice. Once I get into B.C., whaddaya suggest? Not all that interested in Vancouver, as I prefer wilderness, natural vistas, shorelines, lakes, rivers, small towns, quirky places. Thanks!
