Your journey continues on Yellowhead Hwy (Hwy 16) and you can enjoy a stunning scenery with the Rocky Mountains to your right and Cariboo Moutains to your left. You’ll get to the vibrant city of Prince George, an all-season playground. Prince George has over 120 parks, and more than 1,600 nearby lakes, and offers endless opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking and wildlife viewing. From here take Hwy 97 south and you ride along the Fraser River, Canada’s fifth largest river system. From its headwaters near Mount Robson to the sea at Vancouver it collects the runoff from mountains on opposite sides of BC trough its massive tributaries, the Nechako, Quesnel, Chilcotin, Thompson, McGregor, West Road, Cottonwood, Bridge, Coquihalla, Chilliwack, Harrison and Pitt Rivers. Today’s destination is the picturesque community of Quesnel, located in a quite valley, surrounded by lush forests. Like many towns along the Fraser River, Quesnel was a stopping point for Simon Fraser on his river trip of 1808, and it was named for one of his lieutenants on the voyage. Overnight.
