Darn! I thought we’d have Internet access in the Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Campground, but I was sadly mistaken. Although there were lots of trees, we should have been able to shoot the satellite dish above them and connect online. In this pic, the dish is searching, but pointed in the wrong direction.
Try as we might, we never got connected. So we had another couple of days of being out of touch. Even Jim’s cell phone with Canadian coverage (which he generously shares with us) didn’t connect. We must have been too far from a cell tower.
To catch up on the last few days, I’ll just post some photos and a few comments.
Sometimes you get lucky with wildlife and have a chance to capture them without a problem. This Mom and her baby were on the left side of the road when I spotted them. I slowed, then stopped as she meandered across the highway, seemingly unaware of our presence.
But later, I spotted a black bear on a hill to the right. As fast as I could point him out to Don, he turned and ran into the woods out of sight. It was our first bear sighting, but no way to get a picture.
We’re staying in the town of Watson Lake, home of about 1,000 people and Wye Lake. Why is the town named Watson Lake and not Wye Lake? I hope to find out.
Watson Lake is also the home of the famed Sign Post Forest. We’ll explore that tomorrow.
We had our usual happy hour, this time in the shade of trees that line the western border of our RV park.
Don’s steak was overpriced, but good. I chose to wait to eat dinner until we returned home, because nothing on the menu appealed to me. The gift shop was full of overpriced ‘tourist’ goods, but there were several outstanding works by a local woodcarver, like this 3-D inside of the entry door.
