Aug 4, 2015 - Meziadin Lake, BC

We started the morning out with a 5:15 AM drive back down to Cranberry Junction repeated most of the same route as yesterday. Found a new back road that we had not seen before, after several kilometers we found a bridge that we decided not to cross. We did add a trip south to Kitwanga Lake and took the Kitwanga Midline Road back up in the mountains to an elevation of 850 meters. We saw five black bears one being a cub and a lot of great scenery and wild flowers. Found one patch of fireweed that was taller than Kathy.

Aug 3, 2015 - Meziadin Lake, BC

We headed to Meziadin Lake Province Park Campground and found a site near the Lake. After setting up camp we headed to Cranberry junction for the afternoon and evening. We checked out the locations of previous sightings of the spirit bear and took the Cranberry road as far as Winterberry River before taking an old logging road that we had never explored in the past. We started out at 200 meters elevation and ended up at 820 Meters. Gave the brakes and low range a good work out on the way down. We stopped at the Mushroom Camp and asked the...

May 26, 2015 - Burns Lake, BC to Meziadin Lake Provincial Park, Cassiar Hwy.

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 Burns Lake, BC to Meziadin Lake Provincial Park, BC 256.6 miles TRAVEL QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Traveling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller." Ibn Battuta And oh, boy do I have a whopper of a mosquito story to tell.... Slept OK, it was quiet after Wild Man Zeke (don't really know his name, that's just what we called him) quit hollering at 11pm and the trains quit coming by and tooting. Alarm at 6:45. Got dressed, ate breakfast and washed a few dishes; housework never takes a vacation! Rolled out of...

Sep 5, 2013 - Meziadin Lake, BC

From Watson Lake we proceeded down the Cassier Highway with our next destination to be Steward, BC and Hyder, AK. We stopped after 142 miles in a rest area on Dease Lake Wednesday evening. We have seen no game lately. On Thursday we proceeded on to Meziadin Lake Provincial Park which is about 30 miles short of Hyder-Stewart. We decided to camp there and drive down to Hyder in the jeep. This 30 mile drive was the prettiest of the entire trip we believe. There are many glaciers including the largest one Bear Glacier. There are countless water...

Jun 7, 2012 - Meziadin Lake Provincial Park

June 6 Today was a drive day. It was cold and rainy all day again. We are all tired of it. We were told by one of the visitor centers that the weather will improve on Thursday or Friday. We drove through such pretty areas today, but the photos I took were all dark. Wait – tomorrow is Thursday. Sunshine sure would be nice. We are parked behind the Information Center in Vanderhoof, BC, about 60 miles west of Prince George, where we will stay tonight. The campground in this town is still closed from the winter. I didn’t realize we were so...

Jul 6, 2011 - Stewart, BC and Hyder, AK

Cold night. Temperature was 5 C. This is July ? Headed south on the Cassiar. Great drive. Lots of bear evidence on the shoulders of the road. (poop). It ended up being a four bear day. All black bears. The Cassiar follows a valley between the Coastal and Skeena Mountains so you are surrounded by mountains with lakes on both sides of the road. No civilization between the small areas that are built up. Walls of mountains are so steep that a large portion of the road is an avalanche area. Must be fun in the winter. We are enjoying the drive...

Aug 2, 2008 - Meziadin Lake Prov Campground

Yeah, we had sun during our drive from Boya Lake. Another beautiful drive. We stopped in Jade City -- oh oh!! Bought some jade jewelry!! Today, we saw a ferret crossing the road and a baby black bear -- both too fast to take a photo. Meziadin Lake Provincial Park is one of the prettiest that we have camped since being on the road.

Alaskan Trek 2008

Jul 22, 2006 - Hyder Alaska and Stewart B.C.

Hyder Alaska - Stewart B.C. We left our campsite at Kinaskan Lake around 8 A.M., which is fast becoming our time of choice. On our 200 mile trek along the Cassiar Highway we did chance to see a fox and a larger black bear. I have not filled my propane tank since we left home and when I checked it today we were down to a little over a quarter of a tank. With a freezer full of fish I do not want to run out. So as we made our way down the highway we made several stops in search of propane. We did not find anyone who had a working pump to fill...
