The Heart Farm – On The Kitsumkalum

Our Next stop was a special place called “The Heart Farm,” a few kilometres from Redsand Lake. The campsite sits on the Kitsumkalum Lake, and road was even worse. We used to go to this place as kids during school outings, I remember the road being a lot better then. The last time I was at this place was way back when I was Grade Six! Yup, that was a long time ago. The place has changed a lot since I was last here. The buildings and caretaker at gone, and the wide open spaces are gone from all the trees and bushed growing in. But the place is still a camp site. I was surprised to see some RV camping there. There a few tents too, but the place was far from full for the long weekend.

I am not sure if this is still a private came site, or a pubic one, but we had no troubles getting in. I saw no gate.

The beach was a little disappointing when comparing it to Redsand. The sand was the same, yes there were holes and fire wood mixed in with the sand. I guess people have camped right up to the beach. But the water itself was beautiful!

The view of the mountains from the park was nothing short of awesome. I used my 28-300mm lens on these shots with my Sony A77. The sun did follow us, as the clouds seem to break off, but there were showers very close by.

But the day was not over be stretch!
