May 16, 2024 - Day 17

Today was a smorgasbord of all that BC has to offer in springtime mountain weather. Our journey started early in the rain but as we left Vanderhoof behind the clouds started to separate and the sun peeked through.

As we rose higher into the mountains the weather became more varied...and the scenery became more beautiful.

The culmination of the weather game was early winter - wet snow, sleet and hail! Just a little something to make the day more interesting.

The scenery peaked as we peeked upon entering Smithers. The traffic was a little nuts; wasn't expecting that. Where are all these people going...and where the hell did they come from? None of them were here as we entered the town.

We are staying in New Hazelton. Or is it Hazelton? It's all a blur. Our "mountain view" is partially obstructed by what I'm sure one day will be a low housing development. We're here for two nights so I sure hope tomorrow brings some decent, stable weather.
