|After a mostly sleepless night, we were on the road by 9. However, it was the first morning in a LONG time that we didn't awake to rain! There was a nearby public sani-station.
The Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16) continued to be a great highway.
The tall mountains were gone, farmland was bountiful, and the logging trucks were everywhere.
We stopped at the outdoor Vanderhoof Museum. Vanderhoof is the geographical center of British Columbia.
We had to use the air conditioning on this day. However, last night in Houston the furnace came on during the night. How do I know that???? I was awake due to the trains!
We stopped in Prince George to eat and to take on fuel. Prince George has a population of 80,000 with the area having 160,000. It is B.C.'s 4th largest city. Prince George is another one of those "must travel through" cities during an Alaskan trip.
We shed our sweatshirts today!!!!
We had earlier determined that we would spend a few hours visiting Quesnel (silent s). We parked at the Wal Mart on the southside of town. Driving back to downtown Quesnel would have necessitated unhooking, and we didn't want to do that. We decided against it.
Our spot at Wal Mart had a nice grassy area beside the camper. We had sidewalks on which to walk Zac. I relaxed in a lawn chair while Roland walked to Tim Horton's, Canada's version of Krispy Kreme. However, they serve sandwiches and healthier pastries.
