    Play Day At Liard River Hot Springs, BC

    July 31, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    We are now in BC, Canada. On our way, we saw a herd of Wood Bison and several Black Bears.

    We hiked to two waterfalls. We hiked to Teeter Creek Falls and Smith River Falls. We fished for Arctic Graylings in both places. Dave is happy.

    Russ flew his drone over Smith River Falls. It was all fun and games until Russ nearly lost control of the drone due to loss of GPS in the canyon and swirling wind gusts. After several landing attempts, Russ finally landed her hard on the rocky beach. No need to worry, the drone is fine.

    After our falls hikes, we rode our motorcycles to Smith River Airstrip (62 miles round trip). This airport was established in WWII as a military airport to connect Canada and Russia.

    After our ride, we enjoyed a relaxing soak in the natural Liard Hot Springs. Life is good!
