Skagit Mission (Part 1)

















I just came back from an amazing camping trip on the weekend. My friends organized a fishing/camping trip to Skagit Valley Provincial Park (2 – 3 hour drive from Vancouver BC) and I was lucky to join them on the weekend. We camped at a place called “Silver Tip Campground”, and it was so gorgeous!

(The wide glaciated Skagit Valley, surrounded by impressive mountain peaks, dense forests and rushing mountain streams, is located southeast of Hope, near the american border.)

Our camping trip made the summer extra special for me. My friends are the real campers. They know how to enjoy the wild nature and appreciate good life. We had lots of great food and endlessly peaceful time to relax.  I tried fly fishing for the first time, and I loved it. I know why people are so attracted to it. Watching my friends catching fish in the river was pretty exciting.  I was just practicing casting by the fresh water for a little while, which I found very calming and meditating.

The sun was strong and hot. I left my socks and shoes behind me, and stepped in the clear water. It was soft and cold.

The fishing lines were flying in the air gently. I was listening to the river and breeze.

There was absolutely nothing to think about.

    What a beautiful place! If I close my eyes I can imagine myself there. The openness of the place, the fresh air, the sound of nature. Being outdoors in a place like that one is one of the best thing one can do for the soul. I am glad to see there will be a part 2 to this post.
