We left La Conner Thousand Trails on Saturday morning. We have heard many horror stories about crossing the border, so we planned a short trip for today. The main goal is get across the border and then stay at the Cultus Lake Thousand Trails park for two nights.

We arrived at the border crossing and answered the guards questions and all seemed well. Dan insisted on bringing a shotgun so we had to pull over and go inside the building. He did the research before hand so he had the appropriate paperwork already completed. But it gave the guard a reason to search the coach. It appeared like he just walked through without really looking at anything. He came out and said I had to throw out my organic apples (they were in a bowl on the table) because you can't take fruit into Canada. He gave us our keys and went back into the building. So walked up the trash can, threw away one and stuffed the other two into my pocket. Then off we went.

Cultus Lake is beautiful and the campground is nice. It has a few trees but still is very easy to get into and out of the sites. There were lots of families camping since this is also a holiday weekend in Canada. It continues to rain.

On Sunday, we went to visit Bridal Veil Falls. It was a very steep approx. 1 mile hike to the falls. It was well worth the effort. A local was telling us that a few years ago there was a huge wooded platform where we were standing. There was an avalanche that tore down the platform and destroyed most of trail. Luckily it occurred in the middle of the night so there was no one in the area.

On the way back to the campground, we stopped at the local walmart and safeway. In many ways it is difficult to remember that we are in a different country. The only problem so far is that wine is twice as expensive as in the USA.
