You never know what is just around the corner in our backyard here at Vagabond. Along with friends we went on our first bike ride of the season of any significance. One of our favourites and is to take a forestry road to Canyon Creek. It is about an half hour ride on our ebikes to a view point that overlooks a stunning canyon. And we are in for a treat as we came across two black bears and our favourite...mountain goats. They have a spot at the edge of the canyon that has a mineral in the soil that apparently attracts them. Every so often if you are lucky they are there licking the mineral out of the soil and this day we were lucky. They are so stunning to see relatively close up. We gave them enough distance not to disturb them.
Vagabond is open for the summer again soon. Book direct from our website and we can show you the route to this lookout. You may be as fortunate as we were.
