Along the Yellowhead and on Hwy.5 , we stayed at some very nice Provincial Parks. On the way to one park we saw a couple picking berries on the side of the road. Then a short way pass on the other side of the road, we saw a black bear picking berries. We worried that the bear might wander in the direction of the couple so we turned around to let them know the bear was close by. The bear didn't come that way , but the nice, local couple invited us to pick berries with them. In the course of our conversation, they told us about a hike, only 30 miles south of the campground, that we shouldn't miss. We were so lucky that bear was there, because the hike through the Ancient Forest of Red Cedar was beautiful, like being in a fairyland.
Can you imagine Fairy Houses around this great tree trunk?
You can never have too many old barn pictures, so I threw this one in that I liked.
In British Columbia, the last 100 miles on Hwy.5 took us past the most beautiful vineyards and fruit orchards. This continued past the U.S. Border and into Washington.
