To Fort St. John thru Prince George 8-9-16

We woke to clouds and 53 deg. Temp. For breakfast we went to a bistro run out of the old train station in McBride. It was run by an nice lady who cooked, waited table, she did it all.

After breakfast we fueled up and headed to Prince George.  We left the hay and ranch land of the valley that McBride is in and drove into very dense spruce forest.  We passed few buildings and there were no services on our way to Prince George, 130 miles. The main wildlife sighting was a mother black bear and her two cubs.

After fueling in Price George we headed to Fort St John on PR 97.  With the lower elevations there were more deciduous trees.  The road made far less severe elevation changes then in the last two days.

Our next fuel stop was an interesting truck stop where many trucks hauling wind turbines were staged.

The lakes we passed were very much like the remote northern lakes where we live.



We followed the Peace River on PR97 on our way and crossed an interesting suspension bridge along the way.


The balance of today’s trip was uneventful except for seeing two bear cubs play fighting in a field.
