Another Fabulous Day (Tetsa River, British Columbia, Canada)

Yet another fabulous day in the northern Rockies of British Columbia…

I feel like God is holding His hand over us, catching all the rain that should be pouring down.  There was pouring rain ahead of us and rain behind us, but the worst we got was a very, very light sprinkle – so light, in fact, that we didn’t even pull out our rain jackets.

As we pedaled toward the highest point on the Alaska Highway we were, once again, awed by all the wildlife – Stone sheep, caribou, and deer.  It felt like we kept stopping every mile or so for more animals.

I think I’m spoiled.  I’m not sure how we’ll deal with “normal” cycling again after passing through this region.

Kilometers today:  58
Kilometers to date:  2748

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Thanks Eric! We’ve gotten some spectacular photos on this stretch of the road. And to think we almost took the Cassiar Highway instead…

    Glad to hear you guys got to Fort Nelson ok!
    Kelly and I imagined every hill from the hot
    springs!

    open spaces.
