I stopped looking after i saw three of them, it's too depressing, everybody is having all these nice trips and holidays; meanwhile i'm stuck here doing bugger all.

Glad you had a nice time though, it looks good.

well, it wasnt much of a holiday, the trail is 30km from my house, and i was bored on sunday so i got my fishin rod and my gear and jumped into my midget and went hiking. The trail is only 4km long so it isnt much of a challenge.

actually, if your interested in that kinda stuff, you should visist the Royal British columbia Museum. During 1812 and 1776, captain cook and captain vancouver explored the B.C. coast. No other white man had entered B.C. untill the mid 1800's, and those were fur traders.

Yes we still have mounties in canada, but they dont wear the red coat everyday, only for ceremonial purposes. In my small town, the detachment has 1 seargent, and 5 constibles.

to understand fur trading, you have to understand supply and demand in Europe. Originally, the hudsons bay company competed with another company, forget the name. They had thier own fur trade routes, and competition was so fierce that gun fights broke out between them. The natives traded with the fur traders. As stocks of beaver dwindeled, The 2 companies had to go farther west to find more fur. They could only go so far, The hudsons bay company bought the the other company, and controlled all beaver pelts on the market.

Breathtaking scenery! I feel like a walk in the woods now, although BC puts the Lickey Hills into perspective.

Where abouts in BC where you? I went to Whistler a few years back, it was so cool. Didn't really like Vancouver though, the weather was a bit poor.
