On the way down the Stewart-Cassiar Highway #37, I had camped along the side of Dease Lake.
At the town of the same name, there is a spur road leadingwest to Telegraph Creek - about 100km. I had it on good authority that the road was worth a look.
The weather was a bit mixed, but I thought I would give it a try. The first 60km or so was through the bush and fairly mundane, but then the road dropped into the canyon and followed the river the rest of the way to Telegraph Creek.
I think this was a seasonal native fishing village along the way.
Only one of these shacks appeared to be used a this time.
The river has cut a deep canyon.
The road winds back and forth, up and down, sometimes carved out of the cliff.
Sometimes well above the water, and sometimes very close.
The riverboats could only make it as far as Telegraph Creek, and could not navigate these sections.
Had to jump out of the truck to look over the bank in a spot or two.
Finally reached the village of Telegraph Creek - right down on the river bank.
A lot of the buildings are old and abandoned, but there are a few businesses and quite a number of people living here.
Traffic was light ...
Even some 'turn of century' buildings are even sporting satellite dishes.
Heading back out.
Some places you prefer not to meet other vehicles.
Some places you want to concentrate on your driving!
No guardrails here.
Heading back out to Dease Lake and continuing south on the Cassiar from there.
The month - long trip is winding down as we get back closer to 'civilization'. Still not wearing a wristwatch! Filled the tank again in Dease Lake at $1.11 for diesel, and headed on south.
