TravelPod Member ReviewsBig Horn Hotel Watson Lake
Long day after a late start. Got in at 8:45 after driving almost 600 miles. Lots of road construction. Hard to get use to it not being dark at night and no AC even if its 60 outside its still stuffy inside. Hate having the windows open, I can hear everything outside. Cars people

Set up and had dinner before venturing off to the Forest. The Sign Post Forest that is. We looked around for a while trying to find the earliest date on a sign-it was 1975 so we asked in the Visitor Center and were told that the signs from 1942-1960's had not withstood all the winters and were gone.

We could see the fires burning on the hillsides and at times, the smoke obscured the river and ...

He said he had worked for them for a month and they worked him 16 hrs/day and paid him for 10 and was on his case the whole time and he had had enough. Sorry not going that direction!
We did have a grizzly bear siting along the way. A lone bear in the ditch on the left ...
We finished the drive up the Cassiar today from Iskut. The drive was a short one, but the road is one of twists, turns, uphills, and downhills. The mountains, lakes and rivers continued to follow the road.
No trip on the Cassiar is complete without a stop at the Jade Store. Tons of jade is mined from the Cassiar Mountains every year and this store has everything from small charms ...
