Jul 23, 2013 - Stewart BC and Hyder Alaska

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Weather: Rain in the morning, with some showers then clearing in the evening Temp: 51 in the morning, low 60’s most of the day then 74 and sunny in the evening When we woke up this morning, we heard the gentle pitter patter of rain drops on the tent (again). What would one expect when staying at a place named “Rainey Campground”? This area appears to receive plenty of moisture with moss hanging from the trees and lush green grass. It reminded us somewhat of western Washington State. After a light breakfast, we packed...

Time for beddy bye...

The land for the park was donated by a family named Doodey. Without question it is one of the nicest parks we have ever seen both for its amenities and well maintained beauty. We stopped on the...

Jun 18, 2010 - Ancient Forest

We sure are enjoying the unexpected on this trip. We saw a little sign on the road for an ancient forest. Of course we stopped, Linda would never be able to resist! This little gem isn't on any of the tour books we are using. We took an hour walk through a forest of giants. Many are over 1000 years old. Linda has aways loved Big Reed Reserve in northern Maine. The tree there are at the most 300 to 350 years old. This forest has giants rotting on the ground and giants standing tall. The predominate tree in this ancient forest is western red...
