Lisa McHaffie –
We used this guide in 2007 when we paddled the Bowron Lakes Chain. We are planning another trip in 2019. When we paddled in 2007, I made notes along the way. I think I knew we would always return to relive this incredible experience. Thank you to Chris et al. We are looking forward tom2019🏕
It’s one of the great trips; so glad you found our guide book handy!! I hope it kept you out of trouble!! Enjoy your trip next year.
All the best. Chris
