Today was the First day ever that an electric scooter was ridden to the Summit Viewpoint of Salmon Glacier, the fifth largest Glacier in Canada and the largest Glacier in the world that is accessible by road.
I also stopped by the Fish Creek Wildlife Observation Site again on my way back from the Glacier.
This time I was able to see four large salmon enjoying the beautiful stretch of river where they and several thousands of their friends will eventually spawn and then die.
Today was also the very First day on my trip where I met a very curious young black bear. Once again I got “that look” as he couldn’t figure out what to do with me while walking slowly towards me down the middle of the dirt road.
And, once again, just as I began to get the phone camera out of the scooter mount for a picture, a car came along and the bear headed for the brush.
The weather has been very nice in Stewart for the past few days and the lack of mosquitoes is a real blessing.
I’m getting antsy about heading back to busy highways and people traffic, but I’ve got to get going if I’m going to complete Segment 2 of my trip before Fall settles into the high Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
Now I just need to figure out a way to get from Meziadin Lake to Kitwanga, Terrace or Prince Rupert so I can catch the ferry to Vancouver Island…
