I saw this album pop up on my Facebook On This Day feed a couple of days ago, so I figured that it is a good time to post its pictures here. For Boxing Day back in 2015, a friend and I took a trip to drive the Duffey Lake Road.
Obviously it was something that I have done many times, but of course to do so in the dead of winter was never in the cards for me... simply due to my vehicle choice. My friend, on the other hand, was driving a 10th-generation Ford F150 4x4 on A/T tires. That will do!
Our first stop was at the Britannia Mine Museum:
Next, we arrived at Duffey Lake proper, frozen over at that time of year:
Then, we arrived at Seton Lake Recreation Area:
As we approached Lillooet, we took advantage of the lack of traffic and the couple of single-lane bridges in the area, for an impromptu photoshoot:
It was closed for the season, so of course my friend had to give it a “spin”!
These roads are what you guys will be travelling on in CoFL’s upcoming drive, so I thought that you might enjoy seeing them in a different light! I know that I was quite taken by how different everything is, just from the changing season.
