May 11th-12th, 2010

This morning we thanked GISdood & Brandi and continued riding west along hwy 16.  We figure it would make more sense to go up on the Stewart-Cassiar Hwy to Alaska and then take the Alcan Hwy on our way out.  This way we wouldn’t have to back track and see the same sights twice.  

We stopped at this recreation site near Topley and called it a day

We’ve been told by many that we’re jumping the gun a little too early for Alaska.  True as that may be, the benefits of going early is that recreation sites are virtually empty, not too many RVs are travelling on the highways, and the mosquitoes aren’t out yet.

After setting up our bear hang, we went over a few choreographed moves in preparation for any bear encounters

The following morning we took our time and cooked our oatmeal instead of eating it raw

We stopped at Houston, BC to take a picture of the world’s largest fly fishing rod

Came across this mountain somewhere along hwy 16

Many motorcyclists have taken their picture with this infamous sign post in Kitwanga.  Not too long ago the Stewart-Cassiar Hwy (Hwy 37) used to be a gravel road.  Today it is predominantly paved.

These recreation sites allow users to camp for free on a first come first serve basis, but are easily missed if you don’t keep your eyes peeled

It started to spit just as we finished setting up camp and were lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time to witness this magical moment.  Nothing compared to a double rainbow though. 

561 km

We’re stealth like ninja.

Somewhere over the rainbow.

North to Alaska.
