July 11th, 2015 – Prince George to Kitwanga, British Columbia – Canada

More driving, more beautiful scenery and more having fun.  We stopped at another place that has preserved historic buildings and Sharon and Leslie were put in jail.  Luckily they were smart enough to take the lock in with them.  The second picture shows fireweed which is everywhere and very beautiful.  It starts blooming from the bottom in the beginning of the summer and when it gets to the top, summer is over.  By the looks of the blooms, summer is already half over.

We stopped in Houston to see the world’s largest fly rod (5th picture) and to get ice cream.  Don took pictures of flowers while the rest of us went to the Moose Shack.  We were disappointed though since they did not take credit cards, nor US money, so no ice cream.  The 4th picture is kind of hard to explain, so we will not try.  Blame it on the lack of sugar since we could not get ice cream.

The last three pictures are from Moricetown Canyon and Falls on the Bulkley River.  It is a famous First Nations’ fishing spot.  The Aboriginal people still fish here using nets (they attach themselves to safety ropes).  We watched one man catch 6 salmon in about 5 minutes.  Pretty impressive.

    Leslie,

    What beautiful pictures. You may need to buy a bigger house, so you’ll have a place to display all the photos..

    Looks like you lucked out with weather. Glad that all is going well.
