The route was spectacularly beautiful, even given low cloud cover and flat lighting. Still, some rays of sunshine broke through, giving me shots like this one:
On the way I took two side trips. One was following an itty- bitty sign that said "smith river falls, 2k". Those of you who follow me know I'm a sucker for waterfalls, and this one was worth it. The only problem was that about a kilometer in, the road was blocked by a fallen tree. Then it dawned on me, I had brought a saw for just such contingencies. Five minutes later, I was on my way in and found the falls. Enjoy:
The second side trip was where the Hyland River meets the Alcan. An unmarked road peels off to the right, then forks. I took the left fork, through puddles, ruts, large gravel dumps, trying to get to the river.
Saw sights like these as I went:
Also, saw some critters today.
Sheep or goats? (There's an argument, but I say goats)
There's much, much more, but I'm beat and tired of working this hard for no response. If you like this stuff, it would be nice to know about it.
