We departed Stewart, BC late morning. Beautiful Mtns covered with fog. Everywhere we’ve been in Canada and Alaska, we’ve seen lots of men and women on bikes….loaded down with their gear. What great shape they are in for the mountains. Fall is just around the corner. The amazing Bear Family. Mama Bear and her 3 cubs were safely away from the highway grazing. Then, she decided to get them to the safety of the woods. They weren’t following her so she stood up and called them! As she approached the woods, it appeared she was going to climb a tree. But, instead, she climbed just a few feet and jumped off to keep going into the woods. One by one, each cub, did EXACTLY as she had done. Up the tree and jumped off. Cub #2 And Cub #3. And all 4 disappear into the woods. MOST amazing thing I’ve seen. (you can probably imagine just how many pictures I took of that….even though it only lasted very a few minutes). Sights along the way. We stayed in Houston, BC for the night. SW of us the road has been closed for the China Rose Wildfire, but it is now open. Lots of smoke in the area so we are hoping we they remain open tomorrow so we can pass. In the meantime, the owners of Shady Rest RV Campground have beautiful flowers everywhere we look. The Dahlia’s up here are the largest I’ve ever seen. And the begonia’s too. Greenhouse where she grows delicious Tomatoes.
