Sep 26, 2018 - Whistler to Lillooet

Whistler isn't really my kind of place. I stopped at the Visitor Centre & got some good information on some of the places I'll go through but it's a typical alpine ski village with lots of "adventure" things to do, plus they wanted me to pay $20 to park which I thought was too much. I found a place to get my propane tank filled because I'd used the heater extensively last week in Vancouver & with these clear days, the nights (& mornings) are cold so I didn't want to run out. The Sea to Sky highway stops at Whistler & the continuation of Hwy...

Sep 10, 2011 - Haines to Lillooet, BC & South to the lower 48

I left Haines on September second with the intent of taking my time to fish various locations in search of my much desired silver (Coho) salmon. The second desirable location brought me into direct contact with a huge male grizzly bear. I had walked into an area on a clear stream which fed into the Chilkat River. It was immediately obvious that this would be a fine place to cast a fly as there were several live fish in the stream and about three hundred torn and dismantled carcasses on the stream bank. One needs to be cognizant of his...

River Wind

Jul 18, 2011 - July 17,2011 Day 44 BC

Off at 8:15AM. It rained and thundered during the night. It is cloudy and 57 degrees. At 9:15AM, we’re going through Prince George, a large city. It looks like it has everything, even a casino. We turn Left onto the Cariboo Connection, Highway 97. We cross the Fraser River on a wide bridge. The land is very green and rolling. We pass through Hixon and cross the rolling Cottonwood River. We enter Quesnel, the “Gold Pan City.” We pass a big pulp company and note that this is a big logging town. There are lots of railroad tracks. The downtown...

Jun 4, 2008 - My Birthday...Lillooet

Wow! What a birthday! Got up fairly early and saw Bob and Vicki. We said we would pop over before we left so got packed up, hooked the car up and went to see them and exchange e-mail addresses. We chatted for a while and then Vicki gave me a book she had written and had published and a cd of a song that Bob had written and sung for his friend who had died of cancer. Bob then sang me a song for my birthday. He is very good. We listened to his cd in the RV and it was lovely. I started Vicki’s book and had read it in about 5 hours in total!!!...

Sep 20, 2007 - Fraser Valley To Lillooet, BC

From Hope, BC we decided to head back North, up the mighty Fraser River along the Trans-Canada Highway. At Lytton, the confluence of the Thompson and the Fraser, we turned left, continuing North along the Fraser on Highway 12. Well, it's called a highway but maybe it would be better described as a mountain road and one in bad need of attention. This was the first time since we began our trip that Manon expressed fear! She described it as a grand malaise. Might have been that the "highway" was reduced to one lane with all sorts of rock...

Our Adventure

Jul 27, 2006 - Fraser Lake to Lilleout, B.C.

What a day!!!!! Over 400 miles but not by choice. I wasn't feeling well and didn't sleep at all last night. Left the campground around 8:30 a.m. though and began the drive south. We were planning to stop at a campground before beginning the Sea to Sun Road to Vancouver but couldn't find a spot to stop that we could get into and there were no pullouts. So, we started down Rt. 99 toward Whistler. What a mistake!!!!! Should have stayed on Rt. 97. The road was incredibly narrow with switchbacks around every corner. The road was perched on the...

Jun 18, 2006 - Hell's Gate and Lytton

I am also putting all of the photos on Kodak Gallery and you can view them there. This is it!! We will fuel up and hit the road. North to Alaska. I can't believe this day has finally come. This is a new adventure and a long dream for both of us. I woke up at 5:00 and got up and Mike was up by a little after 6:00. I think we are both a little excited. We have clouds in the sky but it is clearing. Let's hope this is an omen for the trip. We will be in British Columbia for 6 days and then the Yukon for 6 days before hitting Alaska. We got...
