On Friday, we took a drive with another couple to see Salmon Glacier, which is beautiful and the fifth largest glacier in Canada and is the world's largest glacier accessible by road. The road going to the glacier was dirt, dusty and bumpy, but very scenic. We had driven to another glacier, and an old mine with train tracks, which went into the mountain for 11 miles. We had driven to a bridge which was posted not to cross and then the road stopped, had to turn around and back again, which was about 60 miles round trip. After returning, we drove back across the border to the town of Stewart, BC, saw two bald eagles sitting on a tree trunk along the water, which is known as Canada's most northerly ice free port. When we originally drove through the town, there was a ship at the dock, but was gone the next day. Stewart holds the Canadian record for snowfall 27 feet in one season.
On Sat., we got our bikes out and rode through Hyder and visited the shops that were open, only about 5. In the afternoon, we just sat around and talked to different couples, and then we went to the bus for dinner, there were 8 of us. The bus serves, locally caught fish, coho salmon and halibut, had a great fish and chips.
