July 10th, 2015 – Hope to Prince George British Columbia – Canada

We started the first leg of the Canadian part of the journey, traveling through beautiful Frasier River Valley.  We stopped for some history, the first stop being an Anglican church that was built for the miners in 1863 (1st picture).  There was a lot of smoke from the nearby wildfires that obscured some of the views of the mountains, but when you looked down into the canyon you could see pretty clearly.  The 4th pictures is from the narrowest part of the Frasier River Canyon which is called Hell’s Gate.  The large and wide Frasier River is squeezed through an 115 foot passage causing the water to flow at 200 million gallons per minute, thus the name.

We also stopped at 108 Heritage Site (last four pictures) which preserves the 105 Mile Roadhouse on the Cariboo Wagon trail.  During the gold rush times, there were many roadhouses spaced the distance that a wagon could travel in a day to provide a place to rest for the travelers.  They have also preserved other buildings, including Canada’s largest barn, a large Clydesdale barn.  The church that was on the site is beautiful and we got a brief sermon from Sister Sharon (last picture).

    Leslie,

    Glad that you are seeing such beautiful scenery. It sure is a nice trip and you are making the most of your time traveling to Alaska. Sometimes Jim and I would get caught up in the destination and miss a lot on the way.

    Happy Trails,

    Barb

    I know it is not like ‘eyeballing’ the beautiful scenes but we are enjoying them along with you.
