Ahhh...Hot Springs!

On Saturday we covered almost 400 miles and saw lots of wonderful scenery north of Fort Nelson. Many big rivers and cool bridges, and a large variety of wildlife including many black bear, caribou, bison, deer, and finally a bull moose at our destination, Liard Hot Springs. 

The springs are in a provincial park and though the campground was full when we arrived, the staff let us stay in the day use area overnight. $29 included camping, hot springs, and firewood. VALUE!  So good we decided to spend another night. Rained all night here...storms unlike CO storms.

We met Pete and his daughter Marley from Missoula MT who are on their way to Juneau AK to drop off Marley for a summer job. They are taking the trip as a great father daughter adventure and seemed to be having a great time too.

Byron got a bath in Fort Nelson and is looking much happier now, despite continued rainy travel. 

Tomorrow we hope to cross the line into the Yukon Territory on our push north. The days are getting really long already with light until after 11pm, but we know it only gets longer north of here.
