Fraser Canyon, day 29

Fraser Canyon. We were lucky to travel through the Fraser Canyon area today. We even got snowed on! There are seven tunnels on the route through the canyon. The Gold Dust trail goes through this difficult canyon, of which was said by Simon Fraser (the first white man to descend the river), “This is a place where no human being should venture.”
ViCrossing the gourge. In the “Hell’s Gate” portion, current is very swift and waters can rise as much as 100′. You can visit the lower portion by tram.
View from our camp. We stayed at the Wild Rose Campground (wet) near Hope, BC and had minestrone for dinner.BTW, there were both a Hope and a Clinton, BC.
Marks the route for easy access.  

Prince George, day 28

Ahhh, a pint of Guiness. We arrived in Prince George, BC about 9:30am. Here we having the oil changed on the Sprinter and that gives us a few hours to explore.
Probably the best place to learn about Prince George. We quickly found out the locals (like in many towns) don’t know much about their town from a tourist prospective. We went to the mall as suggested – hmmm, just like home. We travelled downtown for lunch and I was happy to find a Guiness.
From the museum - a black, brown and grizzly bear. After walking back to the dealership, Debbie went to the Prince George Park. This is a great park on the river on the west side of town. She visited the comunity museum, saw photos of The Hudson Bay Company’s plan for Prince George and other exhibits.
We escaped the clutches of the dealership and modern commerce and by 4pm were once again on our way south.Tonight we stayed at the 10 Mile Lake Provential Park. Lots of spaces but no one around.
