Road trip to Harrison Lake

Harrison Lake #3
Harrison Lake

After a group outing to the Agassiz Tulip Festival was over all too quickly and wondering what to do next on this beautiful sunny day, the guy I carpooled with suggested we go on a road trip.  Although we had no specific destination in mind, our driver suggested we try driving along Harrison Lake on a service road he knew existed but had never tried.  This was my first road trip experience and man, I had a blast!

Leaving Agassiz behind, we entered the city of Harrison close by.  We skipped the famous “Hot Springs” altogether as our goal was to explore the unknown.  Back country map in hand, our driver led us to the East side of the lake, on a rather well maintained road.  Although a truck is more fit to handle that kind of terrain, sedan type cars such as the ones we saw along the way could still navigate through the light bumps, albeit at a slower pace.

After some elevation gain, we came across this nice viewpoint (notice the cross at the bottom of the tree)
