More BC

One afternoon we noticed an old abandoned mill off the highway, so we took our lunch break there.

Some of the most colorful graffiti I’ve seen.

Our journey continues with a night and day in the Village of Hazelton

Our next stop was at a First Nations fishing area at Moricetown Canyon. Only native Alaskans are allowed to dip net fish here.

Just before reaching Smithers, we turned onto the road leading to Twin Falls. We wanted to stretch our leg a bit before settling in for the evening. We were surprised to find four beautiful campsites nestled in the woods at the trailhead. These sites are not mentioned in any of the printed materials and they are FREE! We were the only ones camped there that night. It was cold though and overnight a dusting of fresh snow fell on the peaks above us.

Our kind of camping…no one else in sight.

That looks like dangerous footing to me!
