May 12, 2015 - Buckinghorse Creek to Muncho Lake 263 miles

May 12, 2015 – Tuesday Buckinghorse Creek to Muncho Lake - 263 miles A truly amazing day today! Again the weather is beautiful. Temps in the 70’s. Not normal for this time of year, the locals say it should be a bit colder. As a special note to my mom and dad who drove this road in 1987, in 1992 there was a major rerouting of the Alaska Highway that took out 132 curves from the section we are driving today. Smooth paved roads and sometimes even four lanes have made this very easy….at least so far! DC 278 – Trappers Den Wildlife Emporium. A...

Jun 16, 2014 - Spectacular Muncho Lake, British Columbia - June 2014

The drive from Fort Nelson to Muncho Lake was the most rewarding thus far for animal sightings. The Black Bears and Wood Bison are everywhere! Unfortunately, there are not many places to pull off the road for a lot of photos.But, we did get a few. The Black Bear mom's with their cubs are fantastic to watch. We spotted a pair of Whooping Cranes with babies! Now all we need is a bull moose and a grizzly to complete our wildlife collection. "Muncho" means "big lake" in the Kaska native language. So appropriate for Muncho Lake at 7.5 miles long...

Aug 24, 2012 - Muncho Lake

Today we hiked 4 miles up a drainage looking for stone sheep and woodland caribou that are supposed to be pretty thick here. It was a great hike - interesting because the terrain was mostly rocks and boulders, with a perfectly clear stream which meandered through and had to be crossed at least five times over the course of the day. The valley forked in two directions and we followed it east toward some rocky peaks where we were sure we would find the sheep. But there were no sheep. So we backtracked a couple miles and tried another...

Aug 23, 2012 - Muncho Lake, BC

We made it to Muncho Lake about 4pm, set up camp and took a walk along the lake. We were hoping to see some wildlife - something moving, ANYTHING! I'm afraid the wildlife in BC has eluded us so far. In fact, this entire trip so far had been sorely lacking in wildlife sightings! But we're not giving up. There are supposed to be both woodland caribou and stone sheep in this area and tomorrow we are going to find some! In the meantime, the scenery is spectacular - albeit a little wet and socked in. The lake is a gorgeous blue and green, and...

May 19, 2012 - Charlie Lake to Muncho Lake Provincial Park, BC

Saturday, May 19, 2012 Charlie Lake (near Ft. St. John, BC) to Muncho Lake Provincial Park, BC 381 miles TRAVEL QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else.” Lawrence Block We really slept in today…..got up at 7 with the alarm but hit snooze until 7:30. Guess the long days are catching up with me. Art’s the morning person in this relationship and I’ve been doing my level best to get up and at ‘em every day, but it sure was good to get a little bit...

Jul 15, 2010 - Muncho Lake Provincial Park, BC, Canada

Our adventure started early today from Dawson Creek as this was our first day on the Alaska Highway. Our destination was Muncho Lake Provincial Park, about 438 miles away. When we got to our hotel in Dawson Creek last night, one thing we noticed was that there was a sign in the lobby telling anyone with dirty boots and shoes to leave them at the door. We found that to be an odd request. We later found out that there is considerable road construction and resurfacing done during the summer on the Alaska Hwy. The workers drive out to the work...

Jun 15, 2009 - Tetsa River to Muncho Lake

We were on the road early again and stopped at the Tetsa River Lodge for some Cinnamon Buns and homemade bread that was very good. I decided to get a few gallons of fuel (1.54/ltr) to hold us over until we could reach Toad River (1.21/ltr). Toad River was unique in that the Lodge had a 7000 Baseball Cap collection. Vicki took lots of pictures at the stop and learned the definition of a term used in northern Canada called Sourdough – Sour on the country but not enough dough to leave. The mountains have now changed to the rugged, snow capped...

Aug 8, 2008 - Muncho Lake Provincal Park and Liard Hot Springs

August 8, 2008 It is another nice sunny day. We left Watson lake and traveled to Muncho Lake Provincal Park in British Columbia. We stopped at The Liard Hot Springs to enjoy swimming in the warm water. The temperature in the hot springs ranged from 104 degrees to 126 degrees depending on what part you went in. Muncho Lake is a beautiful emerald green lake. The water temperature of which was 59 degrees. I took a refreshing dip and it reminded me of swimming in the ocean at Acadia. There was a thunder storm in the night. The first we have had...

Aug 9, 2007 - Muncho Lake Provincial Park

After our morning bath we made the very long trip to Muncho Lake ..... almost 30 miles. It started out without a cloud in the sky and then varied from cold and foggy to light showers to a spot of sunshine and back to showers. This lake has a unique "jade green" hue something like Lake Louise. It's due to the refraction off glacier powder in the water. I find that the photos do not do it justice. We're parked in a small lakeside campground called Strawberry Flats. There are only 15 sites and we have 2 great ones right on the lake front. It...

Jun 13, 2007 - the most beautiful drive I’ve ever made - so far

June 13, 2007 9:30 pm Muncho Lake, BC What a marvelous day today has been. It began with what was possibly the most beautiful drive I’ve ever made, three hours from Fort Nelson to Muncho Lake. A nice highway winding through the northern Canadian Rockies that allowed me to relax, listen to nice music and shoot many images, often over my shoulder or through the front windshield. I doubt that any of the pictures will be “classic”, but it was a lot of fun. The drive culminated at Muncho Lake, a deep turquoise blue surrounded by mountains. Ben...

May 21, 2007 - Toad River to Liard River Hotsprings.

Oh my goodness - we Thank the Lord for our protection! When Tony assessed the problem with our retractable steps, not retracting, he found that the metal bin that holds the batteries had broken. Apparently it was tacked to the body of the coach and the welding broke. Tony said with the batteries tilted on top of one another like that could have caused a fire. He spent three hours removing the retractable steps, finding nuts and bolts, drilling through the undercarriage to attach the bin, attaching the metal bin and replacing the retractable...
