Saturday, August 31, 2013- Prince Rupert to Hazelton BC

We walked over to Margie and Wayne’s 5th wheel to say farewell. They are staying in Prince Rupert one more night, then traveling slowly on. They have to stop on Tuesday, as Monday in Labour( Canadian spelling) Day in Canada, and have two new tires put onto their trailer. We are continuing onward, and may not see them again this season.

We left about 9:15, and drove east on Hwy. 16, the Trans Canada Highway. The road was wonderful, and the weather rapidly improved to sunshine. We stopped at a rest area for lunch. The first time it has been warm enough, and not raining, so that we could sit out for lunch!

We continued east to Seeley Lake Provincial Park($16). The park was small with just 20 sites, but we easily found a site long enough for us.  We set up camp and paid for the night. Again, the honor system.

Our site was beautiful, right on the lake, but with trees in the way for us to have a nice view, but here is are pictures of the lake.

We left and went to the ‘Ksan Historical Village and Museum, a replica on the site of a Gitxsan village which has been in this location for centuries. The museum has 7 traditional styled Cedar longhouses, as well as totem poles.

We left and continued a short distance to Old Hazelton. The town is a reconstruction that looks like the town looked in the 1890’s. This is at the entrance to the town.

Not all that much to see, so we returned to the motor home and sat our enjoying the warm weather and our nice site. We BBQ’d dinner and ate out at the picnic table. Eventually, we went inside and watched another movie.
