The ride from Whitehorse to Liard Hot Springs was another gorgeous one. We saw tons of bears & bison! We stopped a bunch of times to take pictures. I wasn’t able to change my reservation at Liard since we were a day early so we ended up camping in a public area across from the hot springs. It was free but only had a pit toilet.
We woke up to sprinkles & tons of mosquitos so we packed up fast & headed down the road. About 45 minutes down the road we stopped at a restaurant called Jack’s near Muncho Lake. It was a great breakfast! Jack ran the whole place himself. He peeled & grated the potatoes by hand for the hashbrowns. He had huge cinnamon rolls & breads made up & ready. I loved the little hole in the wall place!
The ride from there to Dawson Creek was pretty during the first 1/2. We saw bears, caribou, fox, & mountain goats. We got a little rain late afternoon, but nothing significant. The ride from Ft. Nelson to Dawson Creek is packed with semi trucks & oil workers. It was not the best part of the ride. Tons of congestion & dirt.
This morning we are headed to Eklund’s farm. I am so excited to see them!
