Starting the day in Bella Coola tokk its time, because "The Hill" 60 km east of the village is only open between noon and one pm!
So a long breakfast was a good idea and then I travelled with not more than 60 km/h through this beautiful valley!
The weather was great and finally I've arrived at the hill 20 min before opening.
It is a gravel road over the Heckman Pass (over 1500 m high) and on one part it has about 18%!
But it was dry and so problem to get over it.
After that waited a 40 km gravel road until Anahim Lake and I finished the day on a fine little campground at the Puntzi Lake (no fun - this is the real name!!).
The next day I travelled on until Williams Lake and have seen the Fraser the first time on this trip (but the last time!).
I went on until Lac La Hache, where I found a fine campground near the lake (is run by a German).
The evening was as good as all the others until now.
On the morning I was on my my way to the Wells Gray Park near Clearwater and it was another wonderful day.
I arrived at the Wells Gray Ranch where I took for this night a cabin for my own.
My neighbours were two german couples who were travelling from Calgary to Jasper and go on to Bella Coola.
So we could tell each other a lot of stuff and had a wonderful evening together.
