Waterfall on the wall of tears

The sun was not out bright and shiny when we left Hyder, although it was not raining.  As we traveled south and east the sun appeared and the sky turned blue.  Of course, we were leaving town.  We thought about staying another day, but my back gave out on me so standing for long times watching the bears was going to be painful.  I am hoping that it will improve over the next couple of days without the prolonged standing. 

The drive to Prince George was long but uneventful.  We stopped at Kitwanga to see the church and original bell tower and the many original totems that line the road.

Other than stops for gas and a few geocaches we drove straight through so many of the photos were “drive by shooting” through the window. 

Arriving late in the afternoon, we opted to eat dinner out and then searched for a car wash.  Driving for four days in the rain on dirt roads had left the car covered in mud.  It is now blue rather than brown.

Since there are few campgrounds in Jasper, we will be staying in Valemount, BC which is a short drive from Prince George.
