Smithers - Prince George, B.C. 8/10/2014

On the road again Sunday August 10
Alpine themed Main Street of Smithers


Don't see many Singer Stores any more.
We stopped in Houston,  B.C.

To see the World's Largest Fishing Rod that was designed and made by local fishermen.

21 inch fly

First time seeing this.
Steelhead fish fountain
Marie and Frank, fellow Roadtrekers from Iowa. 

After we exited the ferry in Prince Rupert we went our different ways.  Then lo and behold they saw us at this park and had to come and say hi.  We meet the greatest people on our trips.  She's another flower lover.
Lots of lumbering in this Province.
Mosiac depicting the early history of Prince George

Mr. P. G. is a 26 foot statue that is a symbol of the importance of the forestry industry to this area.

We stayed overnight at the Lake Williams Visitor Center.  When we arrived there was a couple from California near the Center using the Center's WiFi.  We visited with them for over an hour.
