Heading to Terrace - Day Two

August 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Today we had breakfast in Prince George and then started the long drive to Terrace. What incredible scenery there is along the way. Mountains, farmland, ranches, even some glaciers. We were grateful when we finally left the valleys full of smoke from forest fires - it was difficult to breath and the visibility was limited. Once out of those valleys, the weather was sunny and hot, unusual for this neck of the woods. It is usually fairly wet here so the humidity level is very high right now.

We stopped for lunch in Houston. What a beautiful little community. The food in "Tea Gallery with a Twist" was delightful.

Our second stop was in Moricetown to watch the native salmon fishing. Today the men are tethered to the slippery rocks but in days gone by they relied on strength and luck. It was fascinating, I could have stayed and watched all afternoon.

Tonight we are settled into our room in Terrace and I look forward to meeting Gene's brother-in-law tomorrow and seeing some more of the wonderful sights in this area.
