Chehailis Lake - Wine, Cheese and..... mud?

 We began our adventure at Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa. An evening soak in the hot pools was exquisite. The stars.... beautiful! Romance was in the air...

The following day...  Nineteen years of marriage, was celebrated on a remote beach by Lake Chehailis 4x4 access only.

 The journey along the west side of Harrison Lake, in British Columbia, was fairly easy along a logging road. Although, I would recommend driving it on the weekends when there is no active logging.

Otherwise, this may happen to your car. There were a few brief  moments when I thought," I'm going to die!" as a logging truck barely missed us. A CB radio is highly recommended on a active logging road.

 The mystery creek cut off will lead you to a dead end exactly at the edge of Lake Chehailis, and at this point you will need to engage the 4x4.

 We got stuck twice over a log. We may need to invest in some bigger tires to gain higher access for 'Zuki'. With a come-a-long and some blood, sweat and mud stains, we managed to get poor 'Zuki' out of trouble.

"Going no where fast!"

 The view and the seclusion was well worth the effort!
