This past weekend a few of us from Alexis Creek went to Farwell Canyon and hiked around the Junction Sheep Range and
the hoodoos for about four hours. Here are some photos!
These are the hoodoos made from sand and clay, formed from erosion and the wind, over the years.
Spud – a four month old Pomeranian – was our mascot for the day!
The Chilcotin River flows through Farwell Canyon, and also through my parents property in Alexis Creek.
There were some terrific sand dunes that needed to be played in.
Let’s see how far we can jump:
Look at Chris’s summersault!
My mom is in the red jacket!!
This road takes you to Big Creek.
We did not see any Big Horn Sheep, but they live on these flats, up above the hoodoos. We saw lots of sheep poop!
In the top right hand corner of the picture below is the new bridge that crosses the river. The older, much more historic bridge built in 1940, burnt up in 2006.
You can see an old homestead below – talk about a wonderful view these people had!
A very cool hoodoo formation!
This is a Juniper bush… so old that it has grown into a Juniper tree!
