June 26th

Just a little excitement before we left Smithers. Dropped a full jar of olives packed in olive oil onto the computer and the bed. Everything was saturated in olive oil including comforter, bedding, towels and the computer. Luckily the computer was closed so only the outside got oily however that cannot be said for all the bedding. So instead of leaving for New Hazelton as I mentioned we spent the next 3 hours in a laundry mat getting everything washed. Eventually we arrived at Seeley Lake Provincial Park much later than we thought and just relaxed for the rest of the day. On the positive side every piece of bedding is now clean!

As soon as we left Seeley Lake the next morning we spotted a coyote on the side of the road. Our fourth wild critter sighting since we left home. Stopped at Kitwanga to see some of the oldest standing totem poles in British Columbia; hauntingly beautiful. They have been standing in the same spot for well over a hundred years and are very worn but the odd one still had some of the original paint showing through. We changed our itinerary a bit at this point and decided to continue along hwy 16 to Terrace and are currently at Lakelse Lake Provincial Park south of Terrace. The temperature has been incredibly hot (quite a change from the early part of our trip). We plan to stay 2 nights here as the park is beautiful with the Lake surrounded by mountains.
