The biggest downgrade we have encountered is a 10% and that's usually on a curve, so we are at about 30-35 miles on those
So today our first obstacle was a one-lane bridge about 7 miles from our campsite on the way up. Nick got through that with flying colors...only one vehicle on the road at a time! Weight restrictions - of great - we were pretty high over that waterway!!!
Today we pass by the Cassiar Mountains the Northern Beaver Trading Post (not much to look at) and we pass an area about 30 miles long where people have stopped to leave messages.
We didn't see any of the "advertised" animals but this time no one else did either! The last three drives have been through the pine forests and with the fog and rain, we didn't see the mountain ranges that were around us, so not as exciting as they may have been had we had better weather.
Our next stop is Whitehorse and we will be there for three days.
