Harrison Lake

Hi everyone,

Last weekend we spent 6 days (Tuesday, August 3 to Sunday, August 8) on Harrison Lake.

Friday/Saturday/Sunday was the Harrison Lake Poker Run. While we did not take part in the actual poker run, we did watch most of the Run and took part in the "lunch stop" festivities.

The weather for the first few days was extremely sunny and HOT...however, you will see in a lot of the photos that the air is very hazey. There are a tonne of forest fires in BC right now...and we are experiencing very smokey air from all of the fires. Then, on Saturday for the Poker Run...as it has done like clockwork for the past 4 years for the previous Poker Runs...it started to rain.

Here are some photos from our week on Harrison Lake.

After all the boats departed on the Poker Run which started in Harrison Hot Springs...we then headed to the 5th stop of the poker run, which was also the "lunch stop" and live music/party stop.

We went back to our mooring spot and watched all the boats come into Long Island Bay...
