North Travels - BC


April 28 we crossed the border at Sumas, WA / Abbottsford, BC. taking Hwy #1

Looking for ‘free’ and easy, we stopped a the Log Cabin Pub - some 50’ long logs - in Spences Bridge – for dinner and ‘free’ camping for the 1st night. Hey, it’s chilly up north!

Scenic views along the Fraizer River

How’s this for ‘overload” – prepared for everything!

2nd day - April 29 - had a bit of everything – sun – clouds – rain – sleet – and SNOW!! Another ‘free’ night at Cinema, BC

Views along Pine Pass – 3061’

April 30 - Chetwyn, BC is well known for the many chainsaw carvings thru town. #3 ‘free’ night parked in Chetwyn!
