I have traveled to Echo Valley two to three times per year over the past twenty years.
I have multiple sclerosis and remain mobile with Nordic walkers. The ten thousand acres of adjacent riding and walking trails are perfect for my mostly solo out of doors adventures. The three trout ponds are extremely peaceful and offer a perfect setting for the frequent reading and writing that occupy much of my time at the ranch. I also enjoy walking the airport runway, before and after meals, with several of the friendly resident Border collies. I receive a great work out throwing sticks and Frisbee to be fetched by my canine companions.
I find that my physical activities help strengthen the muscles still not ravaged by my MS. My walks grow longer each day and after three to four days, I am much stronger upon returning to Vancouver. Should I have any muscle aches, the Thai massage followed by a restful sleep finds me ready for more adventures the next day.
I generally follow a reasonable diet and find the chef Jasen very knowledgeable. He prepares a great variety of foods and one is free to chose meals that are not only very tasteful but also health conscious. The staff usually prepare an afternoon glass of blended fruit and vegetable juice for me; extremely delicious.
The hosts, Norm and Nan are very friendly and knowledgeable yet unobtrusive (If only Norm could play better crib).
The ranch is remote and isolated, just what one wishes in a ranch experience. I always feel, once I drive through the ranch gates, that "THE FUN IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!"
Thank you for helping me remain mobile.

On this last trip, I was taken down to the Fraser river for some gold panning and was not only rewarded with some gold dust but also a relatively large ruby for my amateurish efforts.!
