Yesterday, after completing the Cassiar Highway, we made a left turn and began traveling east on the Yellowhead Highway for the remainder of the day. Today we'll be traveling another 200+ miles easterly on the Yellowhead Highway until we reach the large city of Prince George, BC.

Did you know the city of Prince George bills itself as the "unofficial Northern Capitol" of British Columbia. Victoria is the "official" capitol which is located on an island near the U.S. border and Seattle, WA.

The highway is named for the Yellowhead Pass, the route chosen to cross the Canadian Rockies. The pass and the highway are named after a fur trader and explorer named Pierre Bostonais. He had yellow streaks in his hair, and was nicknamed "Tête Jaune" (Yellowhead).

Today we crossed more than half the entire width of the province of British Columbia. We left the Coast Mountain Range behind and the last hour or so of the drive today we could see what I believe to be the Canadian Rocky Mountain Range looming on the far horizon in front of us.

It must have not been too exciting of a drive for us today. Want to know why I think that? Well one of us fell asleep for the last 30-minutes of the drive.

I'll let you figure out which one of us it was! Now I'm kinda glad it was me . . . even though he's making fun of me!! The alternative would have been horrifying and disasterous!! - T

There were lots of cows in the green pastures. These are just a few of what we saw.

No horse pictures, they were all on my side of the highway, but here's some more cows.

There were lots of these hay bales just waiting to be put undercover for the winter season.
They could have been bales of straw or alfalfa too, I can't tell the difference.

Home for the night! Another night of FREE camping.
