Murtle Lake 2016 – Lightning, Fish and Food

Never trust the forecast when you head up there. A week before, the weather reports stated solid rain. What awaited us was a mix of sun, rain, wind and lightning.

We returned to our favourite camp site. We recommend you avoid it… because… reasons… good reasons that have nothing to do with popularity.

And oh the food. From cedar smoked trout to donuts to bacon, egg and salsa burritos, we ate like kings, queens, princes and princesses.
