Logging roads quieter than expected. Nice area around McCreight, Pye and Stella Lakes and really nice to hit the ocean at Elk Bay. Stretch to Campbell River mostly nice and quiet logging roads… hilly though!

As I got closer to Campbell River the thought of Fish and Chips was too much to bear! I headed to town to get fed and on the way decided that it wasn’t worth sleeping on the ground another night when I am so close to home.

I knew I would get home late, but I decided to hit the roads and push for home 🙂

VI trail section through some quiet forest roads, but windfall eventually made me turn back. Not after expending way too much energy scrambling with my bike up and under trees trying to get through it! I surprised some ATVers whilst I was having lunch amidst the rubble of trees.

I had to detour significantly and pushed hard to get to Sayward just in time for the restaurant/bar before it closed. The girl turned off the sign just as I was about to walk in and took pity on me. Very happy to eat a burger and fries and even had a quick pint while I waited. Definitely glad I decided to go for it!

I was even glad to buy a dubious looking sandwich and some snacks because due to a fuel mis-guestimation I have I ran out on day two of a four day trip! So without a way to easily heat up my dehydrated food it’s nice to be able to get a few more calories.

Decided to camp at a spot I had been to a couple years ago. I saw lots of elk… like multiple herds of elk; which was cool.

I’m sleepy.

I found a magical forest! Spotted an owl and then watched a herd of Elk walking together.

No rain, some good ascents. Nice to be up in the mountains again. Good camp spot with views of peaks.
