Alaska Journey Day 96 / by Dave Hileman

The Contrast Day

After Prince George we left the Yellowhead and picked up the Caribou Highway first through nice farms and ranches, then forest again. The road is up and down the hills along this stunning wide valley. As we neared the end of Caribou the land abruptly changed to high dessert, barren hills no trees and irrigated fields. Heading slightly southwest now we were along the Fraser River which was deeply forested again but we were not prepared for the big surprise of a long (80/90 miles), deep, gorge with the river far below, train tracks on each side of the steep cliff and a drive that was white knuckle most of the way. Steep inclines up and down, edge of the cliff narrow roads, tunnels, twists and, as an added bonus, we hit a heavy, windy rain squall. Very few services on this stretch of somewhat scary road. I needed a brake (snick) so we stopped in a rest area and Cindy fixed a nice hot dinner. We ended a long day in the Walmart parking lot in Abbotsville, 2 miles from the entry point to the US.
