Eastbound CN 2800 is approaching Mile 56 on CPs Thompson Sub. The train is running parallel with CNs Ashcroft Sub and will shortly switch Subs and skirt the town of Ashcroft. 


I've never encountered a rattlesnake in my travels through this part of the province but ... the place is infested with ticks at this time of the year.

  1. At least the snakes usually let you know you’re getting too close. Love the countryside in your sequence.

  2. Yes. Great countryside. I’m dismayed about the ticks though. I thought they only liked damp areas. Down in the middle states in the US one can encounter Chiggers. You should see what those things are like. Never again. ugh.

  3. Thanks for the comments and yes, I’d prefer the rattle snake. Lyme disease can be devastating. There are ways around it but I wasn’t paying attention. I was preoccupied with something else. :)
