We Went on a four day drive to Prince George, BC, to do some shopping that you cannot do here, and to get a change of scenery too. It was awesome. The weather was great, though a little cool a nights in PG, but the days were warm and sunny. We did good as far as the weather goes. It was worth the trip.
The PG man at the Junction of the HWY 16 and 97 where the Fraser and the Nechakco Rivers meet. It was weird to find out the PG man was made of steel instead of wood, but if your want it last, you build it out of steel.
We took these images around 7:30PM Last Tuesday. You can see how great a day it was there.
We seen a moose on the loose, near the Hart Hwy North of the PG, and some deer heading back to the Skeena Valley,
These deer were near Toply, BC. munching away on the roadside grass.
Oh yah, while we were in PG, we went to the Museum and saw dinosaur bones on display. It was pretty cool to see that. The place w as loaded with kids, as the tour was kid friendly, very noisy. But a cool place to see, I highly recommend it.
What was weird about this dinosaurs on display was how small his head was compared to the rest of him. I think these guys lived in the water, and ate grass. He was from Alberta, and stood nearly 10 meters tall! A pain in the neck would be an under statement.
On the way back, seeing the downward side of Hungary Hill.
A long hill indeed.
What is noticeable are how few mountains there are in Price George, BC and back along the way to Terrace, BC. You don not really see them until you enter the Bulky Valley (Smithers, BC).
Seeing Hutsunbay Mountain near Smithers, BC is the first real mountain you see before would hit the Coastal Mountains. You see more or less rolling hills for the longest of time, thinking that you are in the flat lands. it makes the roads more manageable.
Good bye PG, it was awesome bring their for all the shopping the nice Hotel we staid at and the wonderful restaurants we ate at too. It was all good. Back home the rain has come back, so it is grey and wet outside. We need this weather badly, as the river is low and the forest are dry. I give this vacation a B+.
