... loading back into the van we headed back towards Duncan, but we stopped on the side of the highway and climbed down to take in the views from Cameron Lake. There was two girls and their father swimming and relaxing on the rock beach. We spent our time skipping stones and enjoying the warm weather.

To go there, a local told me: "straight ahead, and when it goes up, go up". Reasonably easy, I pick up my backpacks and my guitar and off I go. On the way I let ...
