100 Mile House, BC

Adventure!

We took a short detour off of Hwy 97 this morning to view a chasm.
About 2km into it, a brown bear cub perked up its ears at our engines
(or bear bells! 😉 ) and lumbered off into the underbrush. Our first
bear!

If that isn’t adventure enough for you, the temperature dropped 10
degreed F while we were at the chasm, and it started hailing. The hail
followed us, off and on, all the way to 100 Mile House (~25 miles).
Thank goodness for electrics!

After crossing Begbie Summit (~1237 meters), the temperature raised
another 15 degrees and the hail petered out.

Now we’re at Tim Hortons in 100 Mile House, drinking hot drinks and
eating donuts.

    Chasm! You might not have noticed, but there’s a sawmill there (just like everywhere else in BC) that’s one of my customers.
    100 Mile is OK, but there’s a lot more happening in Williams Lake. From there, north through Quesnel (pronounced “Kwenell”) and on to Prince George (beware the pulp-mill smell!).
    If you have time, you really should consider a side trip to Barkerville, about an hour east of Quesnel–it is a fully restored ghost town from the gold rush era, where actors dress in period costume and portray residents–tacky but fun! This is also near the put-in for the Bowron Lakes Canoe Route, which is great fun if you’re in a canoe…
