Sushi in Bella Coola

Ok, as I don’t seem to be able to effectively add links from on the road I encourage you to google “The Hill near Bella Coola”. The Hill is actually in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park but Wikipedia obliges if you google the above. I have been nervous on roads before- this one tipped me over into scared. The pea soup fog helped as we couldn’t actually see just how sheer the cliffs were but still. I empathize with those who, having driven this way, refuse to return that route and have to be flown or boated out. We will drive and I shall think about it tomorrow!
But Bella Coola is stunning. Phone pics just don’t cut it here.

The sushi at the hotel was might fine too.
Just to note: we have seen countless deer, a couple of black bear, caribou, mountain sheep, an osprey catch it’s prey right in front of us, eagles, loons ( and listened to their mournful calls) and countless other birds. A fine retreat this is.

    Where I live on the Gulf Coast of Texas, it is really flat – as a result I get scared very easily driving on any kind of steep road. But the scenery is always worth it!
    The most wildlife we have ever seen on one trip was in British Columbia ten years ago – we did see bears but no caribou or mountain sheep. I hope you continue to have a wonderful (and safe) time!

      Thank you for this! It is a good trip. I am loving your blog too, our cell coverage has been erratic or non existent a good deal of the time so I haven’t done much commenting.
