The Caledonia Ramblers will be leading a three-day, two-night Strenuous backpacking trip to Avalanche Pass, up the Dore River south-southwest of McBride, on Labour Day weekend (Sept. 2nd-4th). The plan is to climb 10 km to the pass (about 800 metres elevation gain) the first day and perhaps ridge-walk another seven km to the northwest the second day to a peak overlooking the Kristi Glacier valley. There will be a fair bit of up and down on scree-type terrain the second day and hikers may also attempt a peak to the south. Participants will require good hiking boots, warm clothing, a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, stove, cooking gear, and other camping equipment, plus food for at least two evening meals, breakfasts and lunches. It may be possible to share accommodation and cooking supplies. Hiking poles and bear spray are also recommended. Hikers will leave Prince George at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2nd. Club members who would like to go on this trip should contact Travis, the trip leader, BEFORE Saturday, Sept. 2nd. The carpool fee is $20.

If you are interested in joining this hike and for more details, please contact Travis at 250-596-1320 or This trip may be cancelled if the Labour Day weekend weather forecast looks wet.

Sadly, the moose calf we rescued, didn’t make it. 😔. It passed away on Friday night.  At least it was given a fighting chance to live. Thanks for giving it that chance, Northern Lights Wildlife Society. And thank you, fellow Caledonia Rambler members for rescuing it.

Moose Calf Rescue

Five members of the Caledonia Ramblers rescued a moose calf caught in a barbed-wire fence Wednesday afternoon (June 7th) on their way home from a trail-clearing day on the Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail. Dave King, Darren Adams, Nowell Senior, Ron Neukomm and Tim Gardner were driving east along Pelican Road, west of Blackwater Road, when they spotted the animal with no mother in sight. After the group freed the calf, Nowell and Ron tried to give it water. Although its right hind leg was badly injured, Darren made room in the back of his pickup for the calf and Dave lifted it into the vehicle. Ultimately the men decided to take the calf to the BC Parks office on Ospika Avenue and were able to contact local Parks head, Gary Van Spengen, before their arrival. A local conservation officer took possession of the calf, thought it might be saveable and planned to take it to a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Update!  Good news, we just learned the calf moose has been sent to the wildlife rehab
centre in Smithers.
