Hi Bear!

Rancheria Falls

Our home for the night.

The day started out fairly nice. Janet walked up to the post office to mail some post cards. She said the lady there was a real bi***, not at all friendly. That's unusual because most of the people we have had contact with up have been very nice.

We pulled out of the Sign Post Village at about 9:30 am. A short ways down the road we came upon a black bear, so of course, we had to stop to take pictures. The highway crosses the Continental Divide near Rancheria and we stopped at the

Rancheria Recreation Area to view the falls. They were not spectacular, but nice. The Cassiar mountains in this area are beautiful and still have lots of snow.

By the time we stopped at Dawson Peaks Resort, our destination for the night, it was raining, again! The owners here are very nice and they have excellent Rhubarb pie in their restaurant. This is a quaint little resort located on the banks of Teslin Lake with a couple beautiful mountains (Dawson Peaks), in the background. Not sure if we will get pictures of them, due to the low hanging clouds. Dawson Peaks Resort is featured by Alaskan mystery writer Sue Henry in her novel, 'Dead North'. Although the mystery is a work of fiction, its mention of Dave and Carolyn, the owners, is well founded. So, we bought a copy of the novel and had Carolyn autograph it.

It is still raining and continued most of the night. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

We'll see........
