Am home from an over night trip to Blue Lake. Between Boston Bar and Lytton.
Slept in a rickety little "Bowler" trailer. Scary as fuck when the wind picked up during the night!
Up at 6:30 to get to The Othello (Quintette) Tunnels outside Hope, BC.

I'm speechless. They are a photographer's dream (and challenge). I could go back a hundred times and find something different to shoot!!!!!

glockgal and bossymarmalade, I hope you find them as fascinating as I did!
I'd love to walk through them with you guys.

glockgal!!! I still remember the first time we met. We were all crazy!


I hope you had a fabulous day my darling little cornichon!!!!

OMG! Wasn't the thunder storm AMAZING!!! I sat in the window in heaven!!! More please!

I'm so glad you had a great birfday! *squee!*

The Othellos are just amazing! We shall compare notes. I hope you have good weather when you go. In a couple of the tunnels the walls and ceilings were weeping. The colour of the river below the bridges in places is tropically turquoise - but you'll see that for yourself! You may want to take pictures for layout references (or use mine) :o) I would suggest you go fairly early, it seemed to me that busloads of tourists show up in a steady stream. (a few too many bodies in some photographs, but not bad at all if you're just meandering and enjoying the view(s).)

As for getting there: Leaving Vancouvre you go through Abbotsford & Chilliwack to Hope. Once in Hope: you take Coquihalla Avenue to 6th street. Turn on Kawkawa Lake Road. Turn onto Othello Rd and look for Coquihalla Provincial Park OR Othello Tunnels signs. I hope that makes sense.

It felt like it was pretty far from Hope so if you think you're lost you're probably not. The last stretch seemed long and winding but it's worth the drive!
