We had another leisurely start to our day as we enjoyed what the campground had to offer. It was already 15º when we left at 10:20 and continued west 220 km to Prince George, known as the capital of Northern B. C. where the Nechako River flows into the Fraser River and hwy 16 ( east/west) intersects with hwy 97 (north/south). It is also near the geographical centre of the province.
Hwy 16 went through a heavily forested valley with the Caribou Mountains to the south. Traffic was very light which allowed us to slow for wildlife sightings, a black bear and deer beside the highway. We stopped twice at rest areas and arrived in Prince George around 2:00. We stopped to shop for groceries and gas
@ $1.01.9 before checking in at Sintich RV Park, another Good Sam campground. It was a hot and hazy 28º.
The skies threatened but the rain held off until overnight.
