Our next stop was Muncho Lake. Wow, what a pretty lake but mostly still frozen over. If the wind came across it and hit you, it was like 10 degrees colder than the surrounding air. BRRRRR.

 

Jim and I decided to stay at an RV park; the Northern Lights RV Park, just down the road from where the rest were at Strawberry Flats Provincial Park. I wanted a long shower, eat breakfast at the restaurant, and do other chores. We did drive back to the other park for happy hour, couldn’t bypass that!

 

This was just a one night stay, very pretty, but the best part was ALL THE CRITTERS! along the drive Smile

 

So here are a few pictures of critters, the lake and other meaningless but necessary memories Winking smile

Late sun (around 9:30/10:00pm) reflections

 

I forgot to mention, the further north we go, the later the sunset! I think so far the worst has been around 10:30/11:00 but still some light and the sunrise is around 2:30am/3:00… You may not see many pics from that since I probably won’t be up!

 

It was a great layover, the drive was awesome, due to the critter count. Next stop, Liard Hot Springs. ~ Kim
