- Had a bit of fog this morning, probably the thickest I have seen on the
- I stopped by the Post Office to send a card. I had a nice
conversation with the lady in the grocery store that shared the Post Office
building. The people I have met in South Hazelton have been very kind,
and I love the way they talk!
- Just up a road was historic Old Hazelton, where I stopped to walk
around town, as well as get pictures of signs describing the history of the
- It was interesting to see the wood that was part of the original
- Just outside of town is the 'Ksan Historical Village, a replica of a Gitskan Indian Village. There are seven communal houses and many totem
poles. A museum with interesting displays is also on site.
- Some of the buildings and totem poles as seen through the fog -
- Here, I am standing next to a totem pole modeled after on of the oldest
found in the region. The original is in a museum in Ottawa. -

(Sorry about that...)
- I continued driving towards the east, and as you can see, had some
wonderful weather. The mountains have given way to rolling hills and
farmland. I found a motel with internet access, and will catch up on
my mail tonight. The clerk suggested dinner at Ric's Grill, across
from the casino in town. It was one of the best dinners of the
trip! Afterwards, a quick trip to the casino was just that - a quick
trip! Change only, and no wins!
- Tomorrow I continue east, possible to Edmonton. Thank you for taking
the time to view the page. Until next time...
