I'm (God help me
) considering a jaunt up the Alexandra trail this Summer, hoping to make it to the meadows. However, I realize last summer that PC was conducting a burn up in the valley and had closed the campsite/ trail (news)
, I also see that the Alexandra valley is once again slated for burning in the fall of 2021 (PC link)
. I have a feeling that within a few years it will be all but impossible to access the meadows from the Castleguard side, so I'd really like to see it while I still can without glacier travel. However, I imagine that with the burns/ deadfall it's next to impossible--I also notice that PC is attempting to demolish the Alexandra Patrol Cabin
Anyone got any info/ stories to share?
Side note: not sure if anyone's ever considered this, but part of me wants to investigate what it'd be like to cross over to BC via Thompson Pass and down to the Rice Brook road, though that seems pretty fanciful. I am pretty sure that road is due for repair this Summer though, but that's not confirmed.
