the second half of the drive to Hyder this morning. Most of the trip continued down the
Cassier. There are lakes and mountains
all along the roadway, but many of the lakes are hidden by the trees that are
growing close to the highway. Shortly
On the final road into Hyder we found one of the bears we have come to Hyder to see. He was walking along the side of the road eating clover. Then suddenly he ran across the road right at the car and into the brush.
By the time we got to Stewart, the Canadian town next to Hyder where the campground is located, it had started raining. That seems to the norm for this trip. After setting up and eating some lunch, we headed to the bear viewing platform in Hyder. We were not there long when a black bear showed up ate a few berries and some leaves, walked along Fish Creek and finally left the way he came in. Since the rain was still falling, we opted to return to the trailer for dinner and will return to Fish Creek tomorrow.
