The narrow path bends it's way forward through the cedar forest. To my right, the tiny beaches along the south shores of Cheakamus Lake reflect in the sun.
After a while I arrive at a remote wilderness campsite, now deserted. Thin steel ropes with clips at the end hang down from a high branch, pointing out to campers where to hoist and safely store their food.
Continuing my hike, my steps immediately resume to determine the rhythmic tinkling sounds of the bear bell attached to my backpack.
