Monday June 17- Muncho Lake to Liard River Hot Springs

We work up to cloudy skies and the temp was 57 degrees. As we were getting ready to leave, it started to rain.

We pulled out of Strawberry Flat Campground at about 9:10. We meant to leave at 9, but another motor home got in our way while they were hooking up their tow car.

We drove north, stopping to take pictures of these male Stone Sheep in the road.

We continued on and stopped for a picture of the Trout River.

We continued on when we spotted this black bear. He might even have been the same one from yesterday!

We continued on to Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park Campground. We pulled in and the gal at the gate told us to just go ahead and find a site, then return and pay. At this point, it was pouring rain!

Quite a few of the sites were reserved, but we found sites 12 and 13 and pulled in for two nights.

Once we were set up, Bob and Wayne walked over to the gate and paid for our two nights, $21 each night. Guess they charge extra for the use of the hot springs, as campers are not charged an extra entrance fee.

As soon as Bob returned to the motor home, it stopped raining! After lunch we walked the 1/3 mile to the hot springs. We soaked in the upper springs, Alpha. Beta was closed. They put in new steps and these nice buildings last year.

Below the dam in at the end of the pool, is the cooler water. We started in this upper area. The water would be nice, then with the flow of the stream, it would become hotter or cooler. There are seats along the steps and then there are seats in the middle of the pool.  The area closest to where I am taking the picture is the hottest area of the pool. We really enjoyed the soak

We returned to the motor home and took a two hour nap, after drinking some water. I went for a much needed walk around the park, while Bob walked the dogs. Bob went to the ranger station and bought some firewood, which they delivered later.

We sat out with Margie and Wayne until 6PM, when we were allowed to put the generator on for two hours, ( we only needed one hour). They have very short generator hours, 9-11 AM and 6-8 PM. EEK, that may mean I cannot run the coffee pot! We will have to see…

After dinner, we had a nice campfire. Roxie was bonkers. We think she smelled something and she was shaking. Not sure what. Karlie smelled it also, but she did not seem as upset about it. Roxie was shaking and watching into the trees. Finally, I just put her on my lap and covered her up with a towel and she went to sleep.

The wood ran out about 9PM and it became cold, so we went inside to warm up. We watched Source Code on DVD, another $5 DVD from Walmart. Not a bad flick.
