Feb 22, 2014 - Burns Lake, BC

Not a fun day. It was minus 13 degrees C and snowing and gloomy when I left Valemount this morning. Then things got worse. There was a big snow storm between Valemount and Prince George. I could hardly see anything. The road was not plowed. I was going about 50 kph (30 mph) in four-wheel drive. Sure glad I have that. Saw some little brown and red birds that I think were finches but it was too dangerous to stop and no place to pull over. The shoulders of the road were piled high with snow. I also saw a small herd of Mountain Sheep and one...

Jul 6, 2013 - Williams Lake to Burns Lake, BC

Left Williams Lake this morning at 8am. My 6am plans aren't going very well, we are sleeping like babies! Going to have to set the alarm. Got into Prince George and drove around a bit, found my quilt shop then headed out of town. Stopped at Ten Mile Lake, which was a beautiful provincial park. They really keep their provincial parks clean and tidy. We keep seeing signs warning of Moose but, alas, no Moose to date. Stopped at Beaumont Provincial Park which is on Fraser Lake for lunch. This was the original site of Ft. Fraser. Saw one of the...

Canada & Alaska 2013

May 26, 2013 - Burns Lake, BC

We pulled into Beaver Point Resort outside of Burns Lake on Lake Tchesinkut (pronounced Ta SINK ut) ever hopeful that there would be fish. But not there. We had camped in this place on the Alaska trip in 2010 and we parked backwards so we would have a great view of the lake just as we did before. We had a campfire the first night there, the first one in a while. The golf courses that were supposed to be here are either non-existent or closed. It was raining anyhow. So we lunched at Mulvaney’s Pub with Murray and Shelle. Again great...

Aug 26, 2011 - Burns Lake, BC - Lumber Mill Tour

(Ron Writing) Elena had another chiropractor treatment this morning in the doctor’s Houston, BC office. We hung out at the visitor center parking lot the rest of the morning waiting for our afternoon tour. There was a very nice farmer’s market in the park by the visitor center so we also walked around there. Elena bought some veggies and I bought some fried bannock. I’d never heard of bannock before but a little internet research tells me it’s about the same thing as fry bread. Bannock is the term used by the “First Nations” (native...

Aug 9, 2011 - Burns Lake, BC

We left Stewart, BC about 7:30am and headed towards Burns Lake, BC where we were to meet the Schueller's and the Beckmann's for a final potluck dinner together before going our separate ways. The Stewart/Hyder Access Road back to the Cassiar Highway was less steep than I thought so we didn't have any trouble with grades. The new(to us) southern portion of the Cassiar Highway that we traveled was far better than the northern portion, and anyway it felt good to be going south towards the US. The road improved and consequently, our speed could...

Campground: Beaver Point Resort On the way to Burns Lake BC Mike had a blowout. The road was narrow and there wasn’t much of a shoulder. But Jeff and we found a pullout a few miles further down the road. We unhitched and Jeff and Richard went back with cones and triangles and the tire got changed and everything ended well. The scenery has changed. It’s now rolling hills and farms. Cows are our critters.

North to Alaska

Aug 22, 2010 - Burns Lake, British Columbia, Canada

OK, time has become a blur. We have traveled from Steward and Hyder to Burns Lake with a couple of stops. One stop was at Meziadin Lake Provincial Park. We stopped for some great fishing, which did not happen. It was a nice park and we were backed onto the lake. I took a few photos and I am including them here in this update, even thought in the next campground I did not take any pictures. The next campground was Cassiar RV Park. This park was totally forgettable. The funny thing was that one of the books said this was the nicest...

Today was a good driving day, despite the rain and clouds. We traveled 300 miles from Prince Rupert, and are now in Burns Lake, B.C., a cute litte town that we did not have time to explore. Tomorrow we will head towards Lac La Hache, 320 miles away. We still anticipate arriving home on July 31st. Take care! Lisa and Linda

Alaska By RV 2008

Jun 4, 2008 - Burns Lake, BC

In a nutshell... Burns Lake lies at the heart of the Lakes District. More than a thousand lakes, from secluded kettle holes to vast inland seas, teem with trout and await your hook or paddle. Some of the largest char and rainbow trout landed in B.C. have been caught on Uncha and Francois Lakes. The land that isn't under water is covered in lush green forests or rolling golden hay. Burns Lake is the gateway to Tweedsmuir, B.C.'s largest Provincial Park. There are no roads into this park - access is by air, water or foot - and this wilderness...

May 28, 2008 - Jasper to Burns Lake, BC

Jasper was warm and sunny this morning. I packed up my campsite and headed out, anticipating a great day of riding. I was not disapointed for most of the day. From Jasper on highway 16 you cross Yellowhead pass which is fairly high and corespondingly cooler than Jasper. Once across it warmed up again and stayed that way all the way to Prince George. In McBride I met a group of riders from Mississippi ans Missouri. They were on their way to Hyder, then on to Inuvik, NWT. They have been riding in rain for the past five days in a row and were...

May 23, 2008 - Burns Lake, BC

Thursday... Traveled through Prince George and walked along the Fraser (beautiful clear day) before moving to the lunch spot (near the river). In fact it turns out that we lunched a few feet from the water's edge due to flooding. We kept an eye open for rising water. Later we continued and stopped at Burns Lake overnight. Campsite was in municipal park and 6 feet from the lake shore. After a few teen agers left, the evening was very peaceful and only the sounds of birds, ducks, and later something rummmaging in the rubbish which we did not...
