Site Name: Jack’s Flashback

Travel Directions:
The site of Jack’s Flashback (Campsite #2) is at the northern end of Spray Valley Provincial Park, off Hwy 742, 7.3 km south of the Three Sisters Drive intersection in Canmore, and 2.1 km north of the Riding Ridge. The easiest way to access the site is to follow Hwy 742 and park at the Goat Creek Picnic Area. Walk south along Hwy 742 for approximately 200 meters. At the point where the utility lines cross Hwy 742 you will see a gravel road to your right (west). Turn right and follow the gravel road approximately 0.7 km downhill until you reach a clearing. Turn right and continue across the clearing, passing the “Get Goin’, Cowboy” Hillside (Fight Hill), to the Dozy Embrace site. If you encounter temporary fencing in this area, go around it to the right. The site is to your left as you approach Goat Creek and the pole bridge. For pictures taken during a hike to this location, see “Hike to Campsite #2” in Albums.

To reach Hwy 742 (also known as Spray Lakes Rd. / Smith-Dorrien Rd.): From Hwy 1 (Trans-Canada Hwy), use Exit 91 “Hwy 1A - Canmore.” Follow Bow Valley Trail 2.2 km, turn left (northwest) onto Railway Ave. Proceed 0.5 km and turn left (west) at Main St. (also known as 8th St.), go 0.6 km and turn left (south) onto Bridge Rd. (also known as 8th Ave. / Rundle Drive). At the “T” intersection, turn left (south) on Three Sisters Drive, proceed 0.6 km and turn right (west) at Spray Lakes Rd. (also known as Hwy 742). (Or simply follow the helpful “Kananaskis Country” signs throughout Canmore.) See map of Canmore.

It is finished. We saw this image an hour-and-a-half earlier in the film, just after the “FNIT” (First Night In Tent) scene (see Chapter 6, 00 29 58). Now, two excruciatingly painful lifetimes later, it forms a fitting benediction to a love that finally succumbed to the forces of fear and hate.

One easily looses track of the number of arrivals and departures in the film. Brokeback Mountain can be viewed as a more or less endless parade of entrances and exits. Its characters drive up, drive off, walk in, walk out, mount, and dismount almost constantly. This departure is different. The blissful Dozy Embrace exit is almost lovely enough to steel us for the crushing exit that follows it.

“I gotta go. See you in the mornin’.”
