all seasons in one day 0 °F

Travel day....heading north on Highway 97. We see 3 black bears, including a cub and our first MOOSE!

We stop in Prince George for some donuts and coffee at Horton's (a Canadian donut chain). They are nowhere near as good as Krispy kreme donuts. I'm not sure how they made those Krispy Kreme donuts in Washington, but they were incredibly delicious. We are not impressed with the town of Prince George -- it smells. I think they have a lot of lumber factories here and they must pollute the air.

We pull into the visitors center at Prince George and someone pulls up beside us and asks us if we are lost. He says the visitors center doesn't open til next week and this part of town has been taken over by crackheads. So we leave. We drive much north of town and stop at a rest stop for a picnic lunch.

As we head north to travel over the Rocky Mtns, some of the mountains still have quite a bit of snow on then. The lake is still partially frozen and snow covered. Very pretty.


We stop at Chetwyn, BC. They also claim to be the Chain Saw Sculpting Capitol of the World.

We check out their chain saw sculptures and then have dinner. After dinner I start trying to make some window coverings for our bedroom windows -- it stays light past 9pm now and within a few days we'll be farther north and it will be light til 10pm. Our shades filter the light but do not block the light. Not sure if that is going to bother me at night or not, but thought I'd start finding ways to block the light in our bedroom in case the daylight at midnight is going to bother me.

The pictures are just beautiful- wow- is all I can say. Claire, that bench you are sitting on is awesome, guess you couldn't bring that home? Alaska here you come! Joe, thanks for signing Dustins guestbook, he is glad your school year is over and he is counting down the days as well, I don't think the tutor will even be coming the last week of school, so his year is about over too. Be Safe! Robin
