This is part of a series that started with the post called “Roads – then and now (May 14)”. Each post in the series will describe each day what we had hoped to do on our ‘cancelled due to Covid-29’ trip to the Arctic Ocean in 2020 AND what we did do on our Cross-Canada trip in 2019.
Today, we were to head to the Liard Hot Springs. We have heard wonderful things about these springs so my hopes are high. This may be one place where we might stay at a conventional park but, if we get there and it looks like a parking lot, there are a couple of places down the road at Teeter Creek. If we are done early, we would drive an hour down the road to visit Whirlpool Canyon and do some hiking here the next day.
We continue east with no destination in mind and we take an unfamiliar road looking for a place to camp for the night. I am not sure how, but we ended up going over a bridge and under a tunnel. There was construction (is there construction all through Quebec, we wonder?). We see this big park by the water and decide to check it out. You can the big potholes in the picture below.
But we continue on and finally settle on the far corner. This is our view from our camper.
I look up and notice a big freighter coming right toward us! I am getting a little nervous as it gets closer … and closer.
It turns out that we right alongside the canal!
If you know Evan at all, you will know that we spent the rest of the day watching ships come in. We walked up the side to follow them as they proceed through the canal.
Then there was nightfall…
