Tour Day # 12 – Prince George to McBride to Jasper
We get up at 5:30, shower, pack and have breakfast at 6:15. Rick calls the welding place at 7:00, but they say they are too busy to help us and refer to another shop. We call and they are not open yet. We check at the hotel desk and it ends up the desk receptionist’s husband is the shop manager at the Ford Agency and she calls him and Rick meets him at the Ford Agency. They weld the trunk rack back together and charge us nothing! They were great. We get on the road by 10:30, only two hours later than the rest of the group. Jay and Pat and Terri, Cammie and Sally wait for us so we aren’t traveling alone.
Not very far out and we see a big elk cross the road but I am unable to catch him on camera. We go until we reach the Ancient Forest-a forest of big old cedar trees. We take a small walk through them.
We drive on until McBride and stop at Gigglin’ Grizzly Pub and have lunch.
Next we drive through Mount Robson Park. Stopping to take pictures of the Mount and get a picture of it’s reflection on Tin Lizzie’s hood.
It is then on to pass by Moose Lake with pretty reflections. But we still have not seen any moose.
It is on through some more really pretty mountains and on to our hotel in Jasper.
It has been a long, but beautiful day!
(P.S. well it was great until we drove into the hotel parking lot and Rick gets stung twice by a bee, once in the neck and second on his finger of his left hand!)
