Stewart to Boya Lake, BC on the Cassiar Highway

4 September 2007

Bear Glacier is between Meziadin Junction and Stewart BC. It was overcast on our way to Stewart and just as overcast on our way out. (see Bear Glacier in 2008)

In September, the colours provide nice contrast along the roadside. The highway after
Bell II is generally two-lane asphalt with no paint lines.

This area, on the north side of the Stikine River, was being rebuilt after a washout in the spring.

We continued north along the Cassiar Highway with the goal of overnighting at
Boya Lake provincial park.

We arrived at Boya Lake at dusk. The campground was busy and there were only a handful of waterfront sites from which to choose.
