Jade City, British Columbia August 10, 2013

Today we drove from Whitehorse to a small town on the Cassiar Highway. It is located about 75 miles from the Alaska Highway. The Alaska Highway from Whitehorse to where we turned down the Cassiar was in excellent condition.

We didn't see any animals today, but saw lots of beautiful lakes and streams. When we went to Alaska, it was still wintry with no leaves on the trees. Now all the leaves are out and the side of the road has green grass and plants along it. We followed alongside some very large lakes. The day was sunny and nice and the scenery was beautiful.

I missed the turn off to the Cassiar, and had to find a place to turn around. The road for the first 50 miles or so is very narrow and rough. There was also a fire in 2010, so it wasn't very pretty. We couldn't go very fast and it took almost 2 hours to go the fifty miles. After that we were able to go faster as the road improved immensely.

Cindy wanted to go to Jade City and look at the jade pieces in the store. They also offered free RV parking, so we are in their large parking lot for the night.

Cindy just looked at the things in the store and wasn't going to buy anything, so I decided to buy her some jade earrings. They look like small flowers and I thought they were pretty.

The store told me they had internet, but it isn't working right now, so I don’t know when I’ll get to post this blog. I'm able to post, but the pictures are taking so long that I will have to post them at a later date.

We are not sure what we will be doing tomorrow, so we will have to wait and see. Thanks for visiting.
