A July 1994 trip
to British Columbia by unorthodox traveler
Quote: During the summer of 1994 we explored the south-eastern part of British Columbia which is dominated by a number of mountain ranges, national and provincial parks,Wedged between the many mountain ranges is an incredible scenic series of lakes, rivers, and thinly populated valleys.

We spent two days hiking in this park. The weather was perfect and we found space at a campground which was closer to the small town of Field.

One morning I awoke very early and decided to go for a short hike on my own in order to give my partner additional time to sleep. While walking along a stream, I came upon a strange sight...a floating section of a watermelon with wild flowers attached into the flesh of the watermelon. I had no idea where this gift came from; I was at least half a mile from the nearest campground and saw noone. The 'arrangement' looked fresh, as though it was put together very recently.
I took a photo of this arrangement which you can see as you read this journal. I have framed this photo as a constant reminder of how life gives each of us many precious, unexpected gifts. The morning of my walk, I was somewhat in a funky, sad mood, having hiked in rainy weather for a number of days. Upon seeing this flower arrangement, my mood changed immediately as I was reminded of the bright moments within our lives.
