Camp in Tetsa River Regional Park, BC

It looks like a nice day for a drive. The sun is shining and it's 67 degrees out. We got all hooked up and headed north at about 8:10am.

As it turned out, it was a great day for wildlife. In about 300 miles we saw a black bear, a wolf, 5 moose and several deer! We stopped in Fort Nelson for fuel, but the price was so outrageous that we only got $50.00 worth. Little did we know that was only the beginning of it! We passed through the Stone Mountains, which if famous for it's stone sheep. Well, we didn't see any! The scenery was beautiful though. A little further down the highway, we found a campsite in the Tetsa River Regional Park. The provincial and regional parks in Canada are very nice. The sites are kept very clean although most of them are rather small. There are no hook-ups, however there are fire rings so we could have a campfire. They used to furnish free firewood, but now they charge for it. Just my luck. The first thing we noticed when we pulled in were the mosquitos, and they were big and hungry! We talked to a guy who was coming back from the North, and he said "there isn't a single mosquito up there, they are all married and have large families!" I believe it. After we got the mosquito spray out, we won the battle and had our campfire. It was so quiet and peaceful there, we soon were ready for a nice nite's sleep before hitting the road again in the morning.
