Stewart BC & Hyder AK

Remember you should be able to click on any picture to enlarge. 

The Cassiar Hwy finally turned into a real nice road


and scenery was always real good.


We arrived at Stewart, British Columbia.  We decided to stay at a campground on the BC side instead of going over to Hyder, AK.  We later drove our car over to Hyder.  Are we ever glad we didn’t take our rig.  Dusty & dirty to the max.DSC_0151

Here is our park - Bear River RV Park.  $23 Canadian for full hook up with cable TV & WIFI.  They can take caravans also.  Maybe a good one for Craig’s group. This photo was taken about 11 PMDSC_0152


Earlier that day we went to the famous bear viewing bridge near Hyder, AK.  It’s in the Tongass National Forest.  The white is from the dust from the roadDSC_0125


These two pictures are taken at each end of the bridge.  We were there about 2 1/2 hours with no bears.  Lots of salmon going through doing their spawning.DSC_0033



I don’t know what their process is for spawning but these Salmon were doing a lot of this kind of stuff.DSC_0093

More of this..DSC_0075

then this…DSC_0084

I guess they’re done.  I think I saw one taking a smoke break.


I really liked this pond. I took several pictures until I think I captured it.DSC_0110


It doesn’t look real.  I like it….



This is the General Store in Hyder.DSC_0131 - Copy


Here is a real converted TRAILER like in tractor trailer.  You can see the door then look for the wheels.  This was on the main street of Hyder.  Oh yea, don’t forget the blue tarp.  Hey, it’s working.  They use anything for everything up here.DSC_0136

Here’s the main intersection of Hyder.DSC_0137

Not sure what this was/is.



Here is Hyder’s Visitor Center.DSC_0139


Downtown Stewart about 10 PMDSC_0147

This Hotel was built in 1908 at a cost of $100,000.  Needless to say it is not used as a hotel anymore.  Not sure what it is used for now but we think someone is living there.DSC_0149

The only gas station in Stewart, BCDSC_0150

The bay at Stewart, BC about 10 PM.DSC_0143


Hopefully some bears tomorrow at Hyder.  We will be there at 6 AM.

See Ya…
