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.
