We start out on our journey at around 8:00 a.m. We take off through Vancouver and Downtown Vancouver down to the Stanley Park/ Georgia St. Viaduct, and we go over the Lions Gate Bridge and then go up the Upper Levels Highway to Horseshoe Bay where it cuts off to go to Squamish and Whistler. We go up to Britannia Beach where the old 99er restaurant was, and it is no longer there. When we get there, we see it all boarded up and no longer any business is being done from there.  We take a few photos of that, and then carry on up the road through Porteau Cove, and through Shannon Falls.

We then get up to Whistler, and decide to stop for gas, and also to stop for snacks that we could carry on our journey with. The weather is still pretty nice at that time, but a bit overcast that day. We gas up, and then we head to our next stop which is Pemberton, and up to Mount Currie, and then to the Duffey Lake Road. The Duffey Lake road is in very high terrain, so you're able to see a lot of these widely diversified plants thatt grwo up at that level. We also saw a couple of deers playing, right before we went into the Lillooet area, down towards Lillooet.

We then had to look for the Pavillion Mountain turn off, so that we would know where to turn. We go along the Pavillon Mountain road, and we see a lot of diversified animals. We saw anything from birds like Jays, and Herons and other little smaller birds like Chickadees and then we some some gophers, rabits, and other small little mammals, and even some field mice. We then go down the Pavillion Mountain road down on the other side near Clinton. We stop at this place in Clinton for lunch, and it was really good. It is one of the only pubs in town, and attached to a hotel resort. The owners were originally from Vancouver BC.

We then had a drive from Clinton up to 100 mile house, Williams Lake, and Quesnel and I had some vivid memories of Quesnel from when I was younger, and my mom injured herself.  We then take the last little journey up to Prince George. We go first to our hotel that called Esters Inn. It is a good family related place. There is a good ambiance for families there, and there is also a place that reminds of me of Hawaii. After we drop off our stuff in our hotel room, we decide to go back and explore the area around Prince George. We went by the hospital, and generally just looking around. We decided that we were going to eat dinner at the hotel so we had our dinner at the buffet that they have. We then went out for an exploration, and didn't find any thing opened that late at name, so we came back to our hotel, and went for a couple of drinks at the bar that they had, and then we went and watched some of the swimmers in the pool that they have, and then we went to sleep, because the next day would bring on another huge adventure.
