Prince George, BC

We said good-bye to Alaska for the last time and started the final leg of our journey to Prince George, BC. We finished the Cassiar Highway and connected with Rt. 16 – the Trans-Canada Highway. The road was in good shape and very busy, with lots of farms, small towns and a feeling of “normal”. We had traveled all through the Yukon and Alaska and it was a feeling of “otherness”. Now we were back to what we were familiar with. Prince George was the end of our tour. Two couples left the next morning for obligations at home so we celebrated one last night for dinner and talked about all we had seen. We made a list of twenty top events and here they are: 1. The Canadian Rockies 2. Elk stampeding at our park in Banff 3. The bison in Liard Hot Springs 4. Hot Springs at Liard 5. Posting our sign at Watson Lake 6. Midnight Dome at Dawson City 7.
