Beer (?) in Beautiful British Columbia

I'm writing this beside the Sikanni River in beautiful British Columbia.  The sun has come out a bit, and a breeze too, providing welcomed relief from the mosquitoes!  The family is playing chess and reading, and we'll be heading out on day #9 within the hour.  It's hard to believe we set out on our travels over a week ago!

Yesterday we left Toad River, which will forever be to us "home of the amazing beef burger."  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you'll have to read the last post!

We planned to stop in Fort Nelson yesterday; however, we felt fresh enough after stopping for a round of frosty beers to continue on.

Even frosty beer loses its super power after awhile though, and so as the "pickies and whinies" began to surface, we pulled over to cook some stew on mashed potatoes.  That was shortly after stopping to see this guy.

For the last couple of days, I had really been hoping to see Stone Sheep.  Just outside Summit Lake area, we were blessed to see this guy!
Summit Lake was one of our stay-over points in 1998.  I remember being utterly astounded at the clarity and color of the water.  We pulled in to walk around, reminisce, and take a couple pictures.
It's still as beautiful as ever.  It's still as cold as ever, too!  I remember putting on every stitch of clothing we brought with us in 1998, and we still put in a restless, cold night in our tent.  Things are much different this time around, and I must admit that even with its challenges, RV traveling is pretty posh!
