Jul 22, 2013 - Liard Hot Springs

As I mentioned before……it started to rain late in the afternoon on the day we reached Fort Nelson. It rained all night and it was still raining the next morning and it rained all day. It was a miserable day to travel and when I tried to take pictures through the windshield, I got lots of pictures with raindrops on them. Chuck would run the windshield wipers, but somehow we didn’t get coordinated with his wiper wipe and my click of the camera. That day the clouds were hanging quite low and it made driving on to our next stop most difficult,...

North To Alaska 2013

Jul 6, 2012 - to Liard River, BC, from Ft. Nelson

Today was the best scenery of the drive so far. On such a clear day it seemed we could see mountains 100 miles away. We could not stop taking pictures! The 30 minute wait at a construction point seemed short as we chatted with the driver behind us, heading back home to Whitehorse. He was originally from Northern Ireland but after working in Whitehorse for 2 years liked it so much he stayed. We hear this theme frequently when chatting with locals. There were lots of Stone sheep along this section. They like to lick the mineral salts off the...

Alaska from a tent

Jun 7, 2009 - Liard River Hot Springs

Miles Today: 72 Day: 38 Total Miles: 4018d Short drive today to Liard Hot Springs Provincial Park where there is 2 hot springs pools for people to use. They have 53 RV sites, but there was a RV Caravan that had many of the sites reserved, so we had to stay in the parking lot. There is no electricity, water, or sewer, thus the parking lot was as good as a site. Really better, since we were next to the board walk that leads to the hot springs pool. The hot springs are very hot. You can see the water bubbling where it comes out of the...

Aug 10, 2008 - Video of the Wood Bison

There are only 250 Wood Bison in British Columbia; 20 are killed on the Alcan each year. The following morning, a truck driver told us of one of these that was struck by a semi-truck, late at night.

Aug 28, 2006 - Muncho Lake & Liard Hot Springs

Driving through the Alaskan Highway, the road is so much quieter than I thought it would be - especially heading north, it seems to be just us and the service trucks! All the little communities (well, shop or lodge) along the way are just small old buildings - like the Muncho Lake post office! Liard Hot springs was a great soaking spot - unlike all other hotsprings around, they have resisted the urge to build pools and have left them natural which were really nice. Could only reach the bottom pools though as there was a troublesome bear in...

On the Road Again!

May 25, 2006 - Roadside pullout - W. of Steamboat, BC

Steamboat, BC. Just a name on a map; there's no town there. But this large pullout was there at an opportune time to stop for the night and the view was really something. At this time of the year, there was little or no traffic so it was actually pretty quiet. Further up the road that day we were favored with some good wildlife, including the Stone Sheep, and the "usual" nice scenery.
