Floating down the Peace River is a lovely, peaceful way to spend an afternoon. Even on a Friday, we only saw one other group of boaters. It’s a great experience to be all alone in the wild. Although we’ve been to several spots along this route on foot, it is the first time we’ve kayaked it.
This rock was slightly disturbing. We had to get really close before we were sure it wasn’t a vehicle caked with mud. It really was just a rock! The geese didn’t fly away, they ran. They are good at it, but it looks very funny.
One of several hoodoos along the left bank, this was one of the most impressive. It hung fairly far out, and it had a feature I’ve never seen before.A strut! I thought for a minute there was a marmot living in the hole, but it was just part of the formation. Looks like a bird might be using the space. We did see some curious white splotches like this in the hills that were far too big for any animal to have been the culprit.
Another stop, this time at a narrow canyon on the right shore. It was all jammed up with rocks and giant chunks of sand. The second variety crumbled under my feet when I climbed over them – how did they make it through the flood in one piece, complete with sharp corners?A small cave, capped with some very odd rock layered in many thin slabs.
