50th Anniversary Trip June and July 2018 travel blog

Monument to fellows killed in a canoe accident

From our Fraser Lake cabin

Travel today was through areas that had been cleared for hay fields and a few fields with what looked like wheat. Livestock included cattle, sheep and horses. There were also some striking mountains along the way. Much was tree lined roadways.

Vanderhoof was a bustling town with the largest lumber mill and associated logs and lumber items that I can recall seeing (ever).

Prince George is what looks to be a large town in the region. South of Prince George was a road with few places to stop or any reason to. The place we ate (a high priced) lunch was nice and new and was associated with a ski area.

We met many trucks hauling full length logs along the road today.

Wildlife spotted today included a black bear with three cubs, a big horn sheep and what we think were stone sheep. We drove about 420 miles today so didn’t spend much time fooling around.

Edson seems to have a lot going on, oil and gas activities, I think, but not sure what else. First impression was good.
