After a short delay...
We thundered up the Cassiar Highway!
We feel like we are leaving civilization behind as there are no more homes and farms.
I get the sense we are finally getting to the areas I was so looking forward to, but I was
disappointed the landscape was obscured by the rain and clouds.
Bears were everywhere along the edge of the road. A couple even walked across in front of us.
At one point a big black bear stopped in the middle of the road and stared us down as I slowed
us down to a crawl. I honked the horn and he took off into the bushes.
The wooden bridges are probably slick when wet, but we had no trouble on them.
The metal grate bridges were sketchy feeling though.
Hey little buddy!
