SHARING OUR LOCAL STORY
BLAZING TRAILS THROUGH TIME AND TERRAIN
Nestled in the valley just east of Mt Hewitt Bostock, the Honeymoon shelter isn’t your run-of-the-mill cabin. It’s a slice of living history nestled in the rugged British Columbia backcountry. Erected in ’99, it stands as a testament to the determination of local enthusiasts who hauled tools and equipment via helicopters and horseback to construct this sanctuary. Names like Tracy Senio, Dennis Rogalski, and Royce Alexander have left their indelible marks, their legacy serving as an inspiration for modern-day adventurers to saddle up and create their own tales.

Additionally, we were thrilled to accept the plaque commemorating our club’s 50th Year Anniversary in the Merritt area.
