Lovely Logan Lake!

My co-worker, Katie and I were working on-site at a copper mine located in Logan Lake, British Columbia.  When Katie and I crossed the Canadian border, we were asked the purpose of our visit and our destination.  We mentioned Logan Lake and the guard cracked a smile.

“There is a whole lot of nothing in Logan Lake,” he said.

Well, there may not be a whole lot of commerce in Logan Lake: 

What does it mean when your Chamber of Commerce is smaller than your pick-up truck?

BUT, there is a WHOLE lot of beauty and then some!  Katie and I had no problem entertaining ourselves with on a gorgeous nature trail around the lake.  And our last day– it snowed!  Anyway, some pictures from our stay in the small town: 

Welcome to Logan Lake!  I’m the little human in the blue shirt.

Despite the skepticism of Canadian Border Control and the workers at the mine (most felt we should have stayed in the city 50 minutes away), Katie and I found our stay in Logan Lake peaceful and fulfilling. 

More pictures of lovely, lovely Logan Lake are up on my Flickr site.

    The more I look at your site, the more I think I need a job that involves travel… 😉

    @geekhiker: Seriously. I *love* traveling, but I never get to do it. I’m sure if it was mandatory and always to the same places, I’d get sick of it after a while, but right now, it would beat the hell out of sitting in my office all day daydreaming on the intrawebs.

    It’s great to hear from people who value the same things that we who chose to live in Logan Lake do as well. The simplicity of our beautiful, clean community is like none other. We may not have all the shopping the world, but we have clean air, excellent water, wonderful hiking trails for all ages, the best disc golf course in BC, and the appreciation of all these values. Thanks for sharing photos of Logan Lake, and come back soon!
