We left about camp about 8:30am to go 195 miles to Stewart, BC. We needed gas as did others, but the only station in town, we found, didn't open until 9:00am. So we all waited for the station to open as there were no services until Stewart.

It was a beautiful drive, but very tedious for the driver(me), lots of hills and curves.

We saw one Black Bear, but nothing else as far as animals go. We stopped for lunch, at a resort and had some soup and rolls.. We got to camp about 3:00pm, set up, then went into town, got some groceries, gas, and went back to camp. We cooked some dinner, and then caught a 7:00pm bus to Hymer, AK to watch the bears feeding on Salmon at Fish Creek. It was exciting to say the least, and the US Forest Service did a nice job of building a wooden board walk above the river for viewing of the river below. There were lots of salmon trying to swim upstream to die. It was unfortunate that at the time we were there there was only one Mother Grizzly teaching her cub how to fish, but interesting, nevertheless.

We watched for a while, then back on the bus but stopped along the way at an ice cream shop in Hyder where "Tracks", treated us all to ice cream cones or dishes. To get back into Canada we went thru Canadian customs and were requirted to deboard the bus and show our passports individually, as we reboarded the bus.

Back at camp and to bed.
