We decided to take the Grey Creek Pass from Nelson to Kimberley. This is the highest dirt road in Canada with an elevation gain of 5000 ft!
We planned on finding some wildland to set the tent up on that night on one of the first sections of the trail. We found a perfect spot, right next to a river with a little rocky outcropping we could let the dog run on while we enjoyed the sunset.
We spent the coziest night up in the tent, planning to wake the next morning and finish the trail. When we awoke, we heard heavy breathing and huffing -took a peek out the window to find a group of what seemed to be wild horses! Janessa being a bit of a horse girl, got out of the tent to investigate. They seemed to be quite friendly to humans, letting us give them some scratches. As the sunrise came over the ridges of the mountains surrounding us, it was a magical sight watching the horses graze in the little field around our tent.
Once they departed, we packed up and continued our journey up the trail. As the we climbed some steep elevation gains of almost 16% over rough, rocky sections we made it to the highest point on the trail! Surrounded by what appeared to be almost alpine meadows filled with wildflowers, and marmots running alongside the jeep as we continued down the trail. It took us the majority of that day to safely make it through the 53km of gravel and dirt road but was one of the most beautiful sections of trail we’ve ever driven down!
The Treeline tent allowed us to experience one of the most magical mornings on this trail and as always gives us the coziest sleep snuggled up with our dog between us. It feels effortless being able to set up such a relaxing and cozy rest area on even some of the crazier trails in Canada!”
