As we drove east on the Yellowhead, we were approaching the town of Smithers and the area around the Skeena River Crossing.
On the side of the road was a small stand selling something called Bannock. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a sweet bread, and you pour on honey or corn syrup to give it a little oomph. The closest analog in the American southwest would be sopapillas or in the midwest would be a light and airy biscuit.
Ever since this visit in 2013, we have been looking for more bannock. In Dryden Ontario, there was a cool shop that sold Bannock Burgers. Really amazing.
Nearby we stopped at a rest area to stretch our legs. The sites of the Canadian Rockies along the Yellowhead are amazing. Here was the horizon near Houston British Columbia. Every minute was a postcard moment.
