On Sunday afternoon we drove up to the Campbell Lake - Monte hills area to do the Georgie Porgie series of caches and explore some new roads. We found all the caches and found some roads that we had never been on before.
This is the large mudhole near the top that we drove through and came out on the George main road. The silver nano in the tree is the first Georgie-Porgie cache.
This old cabin was down a road that was blocked off because of the swift moving creek.
These are some of the caches along a really pretty ridge overlooking the creek. The grass was really high in this area and the trees were very large and old.

Some silk scarves waiting to have the fringe twisted.
The last of 6 placemats in the Kamloops Gold colourway/kaki on my big loom. I still have to weave gold and ivory. There is enough warp for 14 more mats and 2 runners.
A 2/8 cotton warp ready to go on Shelley for tea towels in huck lace.

On Sunday we drove out towards Chase, on the other side of the river, to do some Geo caching and to find some rocks for our pond. The day was lovely, one of the first warm, almost summer like days we've had this year.
These pictures are from a cache in the hills above Pritchard on the north side of the river. Martin Mountain is still snow covered in the background. The grasslands are really green right now and a lot of the flowers are over. The Balsam Root that normally covers these hills didn't do very well this year and is a lot smaller than normal.
The South Thompson river from the bridge at Pritchard. The river has come up a lot in the last few weeks, but still has a long way to go.
A view of Niskonlith lake near Chase, looking east. Some of the dead trees from the fire in 2003 can be seen in this picture.
My 20 minute sketch of the same view while Rick was looking at plants
An early bunch of Paintbrush flowers blooming in the shade and a single late Arnica flower. We also saw Penstemon, Lupine and Larkspur blooming.
