This a photo journal of a pack trip to the Chilcotin in 2009 which took Dave Arkell, Jim McGregor , Alex Wales and the author over the Spectrum Pass and on to Dorothy Lake. This lake must be one of the most remote and pristine lakes left in the Chilcotin Area. The shoreline was formed of a gravel hardpack that allowed travel by horseback along a good length of it in the water on the shoreline to avoid a large area of blowdown that would have slowed the horseback travels considerably. The trail to and from Dorothy Lake is sketchy at best and not well travelled in the last several years, or ever. Despite the fires in British Columbia in the summer of 2009, mid August found the area wet and cool.
What a spectacular country we have at our doorstep !
Thanks to Alex, Dave and especially Jim for finding our way around Dorothy Lake when, at the time, the options certainly appeared limited.
Another spectacular trip !
