Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 5.20.46 PM

Day’s distance: 272 miles
Total trip distance: 4,589 miles

Temperatures ranged from the mid 50s to the mid 70s with some sunny skies and some clouds. Almost no wind this morning with a light wind developing this afternoon near Watson Lake.

Since I’ve traveled this route before, I wanted to try to take some more creative shots this time. Some came out, others did not. That’s the way it is. 🙂

Here are some of today’s favorites.

There are a lot more bikers out and about compared to last week. I saw these bikes behind me and the curvy road ahead and grabbed the shot.

I did see a black bear but wasn’t in a place I could easily stop and be safe at the same time. One has to have priorities – bikes, yes but bears, maybe.  LOL

Tomorrow is new territory for me, the Cassiar-Stewart Highway. According to ourbc.com,

this was the route that the ore-carrying transport trucks drove from Cassiar to Stewart, BC. The road is now seal-coated most of the way with highway improvement projects happening regularly.

Though the distance is only about 300 miles, google maps predicts a travel time in excess of seven hours, so I’m expecting the speeds to be lower than other roads I’ve been traveling.

I will be camping so look for the next blog post in two days when I reach Prince George.
