Animal Encounters in the Northern Rockies

Northern Rockies in Britisch Columbia, KandaThe Alaska Highway runs from Watson Lake, Yukon, to Fort Nelson in British Columbia and leads us through the magnificent mountain scenery of the little known “Northern Rockies”. For 530 kilometers there are no real towns but only gas stations, lodges, campgrounds and plenty of nature. During this trip we saw lots of wildlife just along the highway.

29. Route (300 km) Cypres Hills - Writing-on-Stone PP

Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park a unique place in the prairie. There are stone carvings from the Blackfoot people some of them more than 3,000 years old. It is also a picturesque landscape - a must see.

28. Route (200 km) Leader - Cypress Hill Interprovincial Park

The loop way lead us through the Sandhills which are huge dunes, most of them overgrown. However there are some enormous dunes still only consisting of fine sand.

Because of fire danger the West Block of Cypress Hill Interprovincial Park is closed so that we had to go to the very busy Center Block.

Swimming like the moose - Liard Hot Springs

We took the Alaska Highway from Whitehorse to Edmonton (Alberta), stopped at Liard Hot Springs and booked a provincial park campsite.

A 10-minute walk over a wooden walkway through a swampy area leads us to the hot springs. Being surrounded by moss, ferns, pines, rosehip bushes and marsh grass it almost feels like a mystical place. At the end of the walkway two natural hot springs invite us to jump in.

Short conversations

I’m having coffee at Tim Hortons and in the meantime I’m recharging my laptop and writing this piece. Tonight we’ll be spending our second night in the parking lot of Wal-Mart. This department store chain allows campers with a motorhome to stay for free on their parking lots.

23. Route (65 km) Edmonton - Elk Island National Park

Actually we have up to 30 degrees Celsius so we decided to stay two days in Elk Island National Park.

You can see here Wood and Plains Bisons. There are 250 different species of birds and believe it or not you also can see Pelicans!
