From the US we headed to Canada, arriving in Vancouver through the smoke haze. We stayed with friends on the outskirts of the city. A quick drive through gave me a sense of the city centre, and I hope to get back again one day – when visibility is a little better. BC has had terrible bushfires this year, with some burning for weeks, and smoke has affected nearly the whole state. With our friends we escaped to the tranquility of Harrison Hot Springs, home of the Sasquatch. A beautiful area, even with the smoke haze.
