Candidates anxious to sway Secret Cove voters

In a bid to sway the critical Secret Cove Vote all three major political parties (Green, Liberal, NDP) have made promises to renew critical infrastructure in the area. In particular, plans are underway to upgrade Dick’s Bridge which will “greatly improve” traffic flow in the critical “Fern Gully” area.

Existing congestion has created significant conflict between mushroom foragers and seniors training for major treks. More announcements on critical infrastructure are expected shortly. .. Maybe they’ll paint the government wharf.

Sea to Sky – up on Dakota Ridge

It’s crazy how quickly you can hop out of your boat or kayak at sea level and be immersed in an all white winter-land forest.

The road leaves the seaside at Wilson Creek and climbs steadily for about 13K. Here the elevation is more than enough to safeguard winter for many months. Cross country, snowshoe, snowmobile and tobogganing conditions are superb.
