Road Trip Day 3 … There and Back Again

For Day 3 I got an early start. I woke up at my usual 0430, with no alarm. I packed up filled up and hit the road by 0530.  The first stop today was Watson Lake. Here I stopped to take a quick look at the Sign Post Forest.

I also ate a quick bite of breakfast at Kathy’s Kitchen.  The Traditional Benny(Eggs Benedict) was amazing.

During the drive I saw 6 Black bears, 1 Brown, 2 Foxes, 1 Porcupine, A herd of Bison, two groups of rock sheep and more ground squirrels than I could count. I will put some pictures at the end of the post.

Muncho Lake was beautiful and I would love to Kayak or Canoe the emerald green waters.

One of the most exciting parts of the day was I found the pull off that K and I stopped at 4 years ago to play in the river. Unfortunately, the water was to fast to get in this time. 

About 150km from Fort Nelson I stopped the fillup and ran into some bikers from South Carolina headed up to Fairbanks.

In Fort Nelson I stopped for the first Tim Horton’s of the trip.  Double Double yes please. The stop was needed for a safety fillup and my shoulder hated the mountain driving.

I was supposed to stay at the Charlie Lake RV Park for day 3 but when I arrived there was a lot of mud and more rain expected so I opted to continue to Fort St. John and got a room at the Microtel

Here I will add a quick update on the girls in Texas. They are having a blast and even learning to swim.

As promised here are the wildlife pictures.
