Day 26.2 - Stewart - British Columbia

These photos are from my Alaska trip and cover the return from Dease Lake to Stewart, British Columbia.   My plan was to head to Stewart, cross into Hyder, Alaska, no border crossing, and then head up to Salmon Glacier.

The Stewart brothers arrived in 1902. In 1905, Robert M. Stewart, the first postmaster, named the town Stewart.  Gold and silver mining dominated the early economy.

Day 26.1 - Dease Lake - Stewart

These photos are from my Alaska trip and cover the return from Dease Lake to Stewart, British Columbia.   My plan was to head to Stewart, cross into Hyder, Alaska and then head up to Salmon Glacier.

This first post will show the beautiful scenery on the way to Stewart along the Stewart-Cassiar Highway.  I encountered lots of wild life on this stretch of road.

There are quite a few metal bridges along the way

The scenery is spectacular

At every turn you come upon amazing views
