When I was a boy, my father took me fishing in a tiny mountain lake in the West Kootenays. He knew the trail perfectly well because he’d been there many times but he passed away just after we made the trip and all I could remember was the name of the lake. Now, I know how to navigate using a map and compass and I’m planning a trip there with my own son this summer.
