We left Prince George into some beautiful scenary and saw our first wildlife. We saw two wolves and our first moose. We overnighted in Smithers BC at Riverside Golf and Campground where we celebrated Desirae's first birthday with cake and ice cream, presents and singing including Ric.

On Friday we journeyed to Stewart BC/Hyder Alaska stopping to see Bear Glacier and seeing so many beautiful sights. Again we had sensory overload. We arrived in Stewart BC at Bear Creek RV park, the owners opened just for us and we had it to ourselves. We went into Stewart for pizza at Silverado Pizza. Good pizza and warm people. The townspeople all came in to see if we were the people in the fifth wheels, word spread pretty quickly. Stewart is famous for its black bear population, unfortunately we were just alittle too early in the season. The next day we traveled over to Hyder, Alaska a quirky litle dirt roaded town that was the start of the Glacier Highway. This was our first entrance into Alaska. We took the backwoods road out to the Glacier Highway which was phenominal.Crossing back to Stewart we had to go through Canadian Customs and we have had such wonderful times with the Border Patrol. This was no different as we had five including a Marine Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer. That made the population of Hyder counting us at 18. They were nicer but still checked each one of us out including Mike who had to get out of the truck. This town is on the Portland Canal which opens into the Pacific Ocean so I guess they have to be cautious. We ate at the Edgewater Hotel in Stewart BC a town of 200 who has a Chicago trained chef, wow great food. Tomorrow we are on the road again, have had a great time but can't wait for the next adventure.
