The Olson's Retirement RV Adventures travel blog

Back on Yellowhead Hwy. #16. Canada's I-40.

Interesting city sign. One at each end of town.

Thats a VW bug under there.

Kept trying to get a picture of the towns namesake.

Burns Lake. Finally at the far end.

Would like to be here for fall foliage.

Fraser Lake. Name of the next town. You guessed It.

Looks like Minnesota.

Vanderhoof, BC.

The Fraser River through Prince George.

One of thier many beautiful city parks.

Stage in Fort George Park.


Flowered walkway.

More flowers.

A 1950's street. Very nice older homes.

Downtown from the Hwy. 97.

Downtown farmers market.

Now thats a RR bridge.

Drove past many raw lumber piles. This one is downtown Prince George.

The Welcome Center for Prince George, with log Pinocchio.

Pretty flowers everywhere.

We drove from Smithers to Prince George. We are finally driving on good roads. The towns along the way all have names of the lakes that surround them.

We are in Prince George for 2 nights. We drove downtown to the Saturday Farmers market. Cherries, blueberries and plums are in season. We bought some each. The cherries were almost gone before we got home. We walked through Fort George Park downtown on the river. Beautiful park with flowers everywhere along with some really large Elm trees.

We visited The Canadian Superstore. We visited it when we first came into Canada. It's the competition for Walmart. You need a loonie (one dollar coin) to get a shopping cart. It has a key that will release it. When you are done and return it to the cart area it locks into the other carts and your loonie is returned. It keeps the parking lot clear and tidy. Also, you either bring your own bags or you have to buy them when you check out. Great concepts!

Tomorrow we head toward Vancouver.
