I tried to sleep in, believe me, but the morning sun just didn't cooperate.
Take a tent with light-colored walls, add a 5 AM sunrise, and what you get are conditions where sleeping past 6 AM is a struggle. So, out of the tent I went.
This was the fourth of four consecutive nights' camping, and of course, the only one when it rained. I packed up my tent and laid in a course for the city of Prince George. But as I drove north, between the Rocky & Cariboo mountain ranges, I still had a few special stops to make.
So read on for old growth trees, a gorgeous lakefront picnic, and some salmon-stopping falls!
