We pulled out the next day and continued along more narrow, sandy tracks. We were starting to think that not many people would be as adventurous as we by pulling a trailer through this kind of territory. It certainly was the roughest we'd taken the trailer through. Mostly because to get through the soft sand we had to drive fairly fast and that meant that every time we rounded a corner or hit dips and bumps the trailer would launch itself up high and bash around a bit. We avoided a particularly steep descent to Jasper Beach after reading that no everyone gets out and turned inland towards Lake Jasper and the way out towards Pemberton. We rouned a corner and came across a steep uphill that was deeply rutted. It caused us a few problems for nearly 2 hours and involved the use of both the winch and high-lift jack to get us sorted. Once on the way again we had no more troubles into beautiful Lake Jasper. Here we found one of the best camping sites we've had for quite some time with an soft covering of melaluca leaves underfoot and peppermint gums and spear head grass trees surrounding our camp. We cooked oyster blade steaks, potatoes, brocolli and a side salad of avocado filled with red salmon and dressing.
