The Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Mountain Adventure with Michael

With the wildfires still raging in many parts of BC our son Michael invited me to a trip on his ATV to a nearby mountain range between Burton and Nakusp. Apart from the magnificent scenery we also for a few hours escaped the dense smoke down in the valley and breathed in the clean and invigorating mountain air. Now less than a week later the long expected rain has finally come to the Arrow Lake region and brought much needed relief from the smoky conditions. Enjoy the video.

      To breathe in pure and unpolluted mountain air is a wonderful experience, Luda.

        Oh, you are so so so on point here…but to even soak in the abundance of negative ions is a healing all on its own

      Thank you, Hanne, for coming back to me on this problem with FB. WordPress informed me that my posts will no longer be automatically connect to FB. It needs to be done manually. Now I found the answer by just entering my website address into my home page at FB, whenever I would like my latest post to be seen.
      I am so happy that you like the video of my mountain trip. Have a great day!

        Maybe it works if you scroll down to the end of your post and press the Facebook button? That’s how I do it. Then you have the opportunity to write an introduction and the proper link to your post appears??
        Wishing you a lovely evening! 🤗👋🏻

    So wunderschöne Natur habt ihr um euch herum! Die Rocky Mountains würde ich sehr gerne einmal erleben … seufz. Ich darf das Video meinem Mann nicht zeigen, dann will er auch so ein Gerät haben … 😉 😀

    Die Pflanzen mit den weissen Haarbüscheln sehen interessant aus, was ist das denn?

      Leider weiß ich den Namen für die Wuschelköpfe auch nicht. Ja diese Maschinen gehen durch dick und dünn. Wir haben damit auch einen Bach überquert. Diese ATV Fahrzeuge heißen hier nicht umsonst off road vehicles. Herzliche Grüße! Peter

    Lieber Peter, das Video wirkt auf mich wohltuend und beruhigend –
    ja, ein bisschen anders ist es schon, und doch auch verwandt mit dem schwarzen Walde und dem nahen Alpenvorland …

      Für uns war es geradezu heilsam, weil der Rauch von Waldbränden uns stark belastet hatte. Nun ist der Regen endlich eingetroffen und schon kann man buchstäblich wieder aufatmen.

    Danke für den Einblick!
    So much to say!
    Ich frage mich, was das für eine Aufwand ist, so ein Gerät aufs den Trucker zu packen.

    Bist Du noch gut zu Fuß, Peter? Sieht so aus!

    Danke für die Eindrücke!

      Seit meiner Krebsbehandlung muss ich mich noch sehr in Acht nehmen. Als unsere Kinder noch klein waren sind wir jedes Jahr in die Berge gewandert. Wanderwege gibt es hier nicht wie in Deutschland.Man muss seinen eigenen Weg finden.

        Das wusste ich (natürlich) nicht.
        Ich wandere ganz gerne. Aber nicht wie mein Bruder jedes WE.
        Auch gerne an Stränden entlang. Das macht den Kopf frei!

      Michael’s dog (Piper is her name) is adorable. I love her too. Unfortunately, we can’t have any pets, because Biene is allergic to them (especially to cats).

      Thank you, Bun! We are indeed blessed with a spectacular surrounding. No wonder we fell in love with this beautiful corner of the world. More than half of our entire life we have spent here.
      Welcome back to the Klopp family blog! Biene and I were truly worried about you. Biene always asks if you had written another comment. Glad to hear that you have solved your problems, Bun. Hopefully, one day you will be able to come back to your own humorous blog. We are missing your witty contributions.
