The two RV Gypsies returned
to Beaver Falls
in McBride, British Columbia
July 30, 2015

The two RV Gypsies took a short walk along the west side of the Holmes (Beaver) River with views of a small waterfall. The trail had some rough spots, but was relatively level.

The trail runs from a small parking area, along the west bank of the Beaver (Holmes) River. During the fall run of spawning Chinook Salmon, this trail provides a first hand view of salmon trying to jump the falls.

Visitors are cautioned to take care as there are no guard rails or fencing at the falls area. Below are photos from 2009 (the smaller ones) and 2015 (the bigger ones). a bit of change in the path, but the falls are the same.

Below: (In 2009) Karen was looking left and photographing the above sign. Lee was looking left too, then suddenly hit his brakes. The road had ended and there was a drop down to the river. Good thing Lee looked forward in time and had good reflexes. It would not have been nice if they had driven into the river. All's well that end's well.

Below: The two RV Gypsies walked to the edge of the River for a view of the bridge before starting on the path. The path started out level and very easy to navigate.

Below (2015) The water and/or weather has done some damage in the area, and in several spots, the river was close to the edge of a crumbling trail.
