Last night, on the night before Thanksgiving, we carved pumpkins. Yes, you heard that right!
And today we travelled up the Fraser Canyon with our good friends – five of us in all. We each had a pumpkin, that would serve as our ticket for the Hell’s Gate Airtram that stretches across the narrowest most treacherous part of the rocky canyon, through which the Fraser River has carved its path.
And if that is not cool enough – on this day each year – you are allowed to toss the pumpkin from the tram and watch it smash on the rocks below…
It is ridiculous… and spectacular… and amazing!
We weren’t the only ones travelling with pumpkins, though we agreed that this biker’s pumpkin was definitely the most terrifying of the lot.
The lure was irresistible…
And I took about a billion photos… and a rather shaky video.
I will let them tell the story…
And finally, here is a rather poor quality video of the pumpkin toss. I must warn that it is jarring and possibly seizure inducing in the random movements of my camera. Yikes! I will try to get better at this in the future.
❤️ I am so grateful for these people and their friendship!
It was a ridiculously fun and spectacular day!
