Stardate: June 5, 2009

Mt. Rainier, WA to Cultus Lake, BC
207 miles
Sunnyside Campground

Got up this morning after it rain most of last night...
Our roof top tent held up with no problem..but we made the mistake of leaving some things outside.

Left Mt. Rainier this morning and slowly inched out way out of the mountain under cloudy skies and closer to the Canadian border...

Stopped at an REI in Seattle and when we came out to our surprise there was an FJ40 parked right next to us with California tags...what are the chances of that eh ??
Turns out that is this guy--whose name scapes me righ now-- who just moved from SoCal and has been in Mexico for the past 6 months..

Once at the border we were held up for about half hour and were on our way to Cultus Lake, under the recommendation of one of the customs officer...

First order of things was to stop at TIM HORTONS and get a "large double double eh !! " and a "everything bagle w/ cream cheese".

Yah baby... IM HOME !!!

Im sure the customs officer meant well but I would not recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to camp...

The whole damn town seemed to be there at this little campground.
The place was really nice and picturesque but just too busy...

I would recommend driving another half hour to the city of Hope, BC an crashing there.. much much less crowded..

Here are some pics of Cultus Lake
