Day 22 – Watson Lake,YT to Fort Nelson,BC

We departed Watson Lake early today even though we had a relatively short distance to drive. It was a good thing that we did because today was Critter Day! By the time we arrived in Fort Nelson we had seen 12 bears, 40 bison, 29 bighorn sheep and a marmot. We stopped many times to both photograph the animals and the beautiful vistas as we crossed the Rocky Mountains. It was chilly because at times it was overcast with a wind but the sun came out quite often also. The road surface was much improved.

    What a great day to see wildlife. Did you carry any bear pepper spray, just in case?
