Sep 4, 2018 - Prince Rupert to Terrace

The section of the Yellowhead Highway from Prince Rupert to Terrace is supposed to be one of the most beautiful in BC & I have to agree. It helped that I picked a perfect day & there were plenty of places to stop & take photos. There is nothing on the 150 km stretch, no towns, houses or even fuel. Nothing except the Skeena River, the highway, the railway line, all very close together & lots & lots of scenery.

Canada 2018

Aug 27, 2016 - Stewert to Terrace, BC

August 27, 2016 Hyder, AK is in the far southeastern part of the AK panhandle and in America’s largest national forest, Tongrass, that is 17 million acres and 11,000 miles of shoreline. It is the largest protected temperate rainforest in the world. (Again, the area description captures careful wording!) We got up at 6:30 to go to Fish Creek in Hyder to see if we could see a bear catching salmon. No rain! There were about 20 people there, most were VERY serious photographers with bags larger than standard airline carryon luggage. Austrian...

Jul 23, 2016 - Terrace July 23- 24

This is the second time we have been to Terrace. This time we had a chance to have a look around. The last visit here was Ed chasing physiotherapists as his back was full of spasms. Terrace has a wonderful museum, it is the best we have seen since the Walla Walla museum in Washington a years ago. It appears to be a very place from what we have seen. Our drive in from Smithers was our first rainy day we have driven in since we started this trip. So we missed the Seven Sisters Mountain range coming here. Hoping the skies are bright and high...

Prince Rupert Bound

Jul 27, 2015 - Reel In RV Park

We drove about 75 miles east today to Terrace, BC. We checked in at the Reel In Motel and RV Park. Good place to do laundry and fill our fresh water tank. Dinner at Boston Pizza and some grocery shopping before doing some laundry. The beauty around us continues, even though we're still experiencing rain off and on. That's what makes it so great to look at I guess. Tomorrow we're heading back north a bit on our way to Hyder, Alaska. We want to see the migrating salmon there and view the bears feasting on them as they return to their birth...

May 15, 2014 - Terrace, BC

Before we left the Dave’s RV Park, Mrs. Dave brought over some warm muffins and O’Henry cookies. Wow! The drive from Vanderhoof to Terrace, BC was simply wonderful. We had lunch at a riverside park in Telkwa. This year, the river was high and muddy while the train passed. In August, 2011 we had lunch here and saw a fellow catch a nice sockeye (red) salmon over there in clear water. Anyone who has taken the route knows that once you get to Smithers, your jaw drops. Such mountains, so close and with snow in May! Check the Smithers picture....

Jul 11, 2013 - Stewart to Terrace, BC - Day 41

July 11, 2013...Travel to Terrace, BC. We left Stewart about 8:30 am. It was cloudy and 55 degrees. We headed east on Hwy. 37A, stopping at the Bear Glacier again. There are several glaciers along this road. The wildflowers on the mountain were lovely. Windy here at the glacier. We headed south on Hwy. 37 and crossed Nass River on a wood-plank, single lane bridge. We saw a sign there about Stewart and Hyder and the bear watching. Well, we had done that, but saw no bears. Hwy. 37 finally turned into a good, paved road with shoulders and...

North to Alaska 2013

Aug 1, 2012 - Day 99, Kitimat and Nisga'a lava beds

Day 99, Wednesday, August 01, 2012 It started raining last night and continued most of the night. It’s pretty soggy out there but the rain stopped before we set out this morning. We actually took two daytrips today. First, we drove south about 40 miles to the town of Kitimat. Along the way, we stopped at a couple of Provincial Parks along the Kitimat River. One lake has a swimming section buoyed off. I won’t even get in my pool until the water is about 82 degrees. This water is nowhere near that. We walked through another park that has...

Jul 31, 2012 - Day 98, drive to Terrace

Day 98, Tuesday, July 31, 2012 We got up early in the gray gloom to go out to Fish Creek one last time. We missed the action by a half hour. The three wolves had already been there and two brown bears. Oh well. We said goodbye to Alaska for real this time, went back to camp, loaded up and headed out. Driving back the Stewart Access Road, the clouds were low and swirling around the mountains. We saw one black bear on the side of the road peeking over a concrete barrier with grass hanging out of his mouth. He was cute. Once we were back on...

Jul 7, 2011 - Smithers to Terrace

It’s a warm morning with high, fluffy white clouds against a blue sky. After breakfast and a shower we packed up and drove across the highway to visit Adam’s Wildlife Museum. He gives a money back guarantee to anyone who thinks the visit is not worth the $7.50 admission. I doubt seriously anyone has ever asked for a refund since ‘awesome’ does not do the display justice. It took Adam, a professional taxidermist, a month and three days to put up the display. He said that some nights he just slept there rather than go home. The background...

Jul 4, 2011 - Terrace,BC

Left the RV Park at 10:50AM after breakfast at Denny's. Today we took a self-guided auto tour of Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park. In about 1775 a volcano erupted from a seemingly insignificant cone, less than 70 meters high, sending a fiery tongue of lava to spread across Ayns Lisims (Nass River) Valley, over 20 km north. Our tour consisted of many stops along the way. One of which included the village of Gitlaxt'aamiks (New Aiyansh). In front of their community hall are 4 totem poles representing the four Nisga'a clans (Raven,...

Jul 3, 2011 - Terrace,BC

We left Stewart at 10:50AM back the way we came on Rt37A, known as Glacier Highway because you can observe over 20 glacier formations overlooking the highway. Stopped again at Bear Glacier on the way out. This glacier appeared in the movie Insomnia with a cabin constructed in front of it. Photo-op for Mr. Bill of a one-lane bridge, Nass River Bridge, 130' above the river. Met a couple from Australia touring the Northwest in their overland, off-road RV. The map on the side of it shows everywhere they have taken it. Very impressive. Saw a...
