Off to Prince George today. Long leg around 700km. I will try to post photos from yesterday as it was yet again another highlight of the trip with lifelong memories.

Photo for photo...a guy and his gal wanted a photo at the Bear Glacier in exchange for them taking a photo for me. Bullseye was farther down taking some shots of his own.



A much prettier shot of just the bike.

Of course in tradition of our ride, we encountered wicked rain, gusting winds and even some sleet a few km from Stewart. This dampened not only us but our spirits as we really wanted a break from the weather so we could make a run for Salmon Glacier which is off road only.

Luckily mother nature eased up after dousing us and gave some excellent and needed sunshine.

We stopped first at the Bear viewing area.















No bears of course, but we did already see our share on the highways anyways

We rode up 27km of twisty gravel roads with large potholes and ruts. No problem for Adventure Bikes, big problems for lesser bikes.

And then this happened...

Salmon Glacier

This is the fourth largest Glacier in Canada.
It puts the one near Banff to shame. Its hard to access and the road is a working road so it limits tourists to off road vehicles or 4 by 4 vehicles.

This one deserves its very own entry




Over 1100 meters here at the snow line.
Pictures don't do the place justice. It is majestic and serene.

It was a lot as fun going down as coming up the mountain.
We got back into town to see the famous place in Hyder!

Going back to the Stewart side was a easy check the passports, quick conversation on what we were doing, and ride away affair.

Our motel. Made it stinky with our wet gear too!!



Some old buildings in Stewart BC

Made it to Prince George safely. Last 3 hours was a dramatic change in weather. Hot 33 Celsius . The super comfy Tenere just eats the miles. Just have to keep the mind busy as these roads are sedate in comparison to what we rode the last few days. Lots of joking around while using the Cardo communicators helps.

Ate at Moxies, our waitress looked a bit like Olivia Wild. Sorry guys no photos.
