Smithers Pictorial: 25-08-16

Some images of the ranches around Smithers and a flower garden near the railway station. A beautiful friendly town with lovely cafes, a great library and some cheap fast food options like McDonald's. I really liked the streetside cafe called Bugwood Bean as they served up great coffee and muffins.

Yellowhead : Old Hazelton to Smithers – 75 Kms 24-08-16

As I got closer to Smithers on the hilly roads, and rode along the Bulkley river, I could see the valley opening up and forests of aspen and fir giving way to ranches and rolling farmlands, with grazing cows and horses. It was a pretty sight, though very different to the sights of dense forests and bears on the Cassiar!

Yellowhead Highway / 16 – Kitwanga Junction to Old Hazelton – 60 Kms

This was an interesting day. To ride on a busy highway with a lot of commercial traffic and a narrow shoulder was quite an experience. I was glad to see the village of Hazelton and decided to explore a bit more and ride to Old Hazelton which was 7 kms to the left past the Info center. Along the way, i crossed the gorgeous canyon on the Hagwilget bridge.
