Our first day in Barkerville was perfect. Nice warm, but not hot, weather and sunny skies.
But by that evening we were huddled under a tarp that we literally threw over ourselves and the picnic table at our campsite. We ate our dinner of ramen noodles and hot dogs under a wet, steamy tarp cave while waiting for the thunderstorm to pass.
The next day we set off looking for better weather. We just kept heading towards that yellow patch.
