We have finally made it to Labrador City, and not a moment too soon. All the way from Thunder Bay, this had been a long drive since the last time we got a shower and bed. I hope we didn’t smell too bad.
While driving the infamous Highway 389 (Labrador Hwy), we saw some nice sites like this bog near Fire Lake Quebec.
Also, as you approach Labrador City, there are massive mining operations and other forestry & hydro projects scattered on the landscape. We could tell recreational drivers never really travel up this way.
As we drove into town, we found a reasonable hotel called the Carol Inn to take us in. Thank goodness. We needed to refresh and reload. The next morning, we set off into the city to check out the sights and sounds. We got some souvenirs at the Labrador Rose and meandered the “downtown” area.
After a little bit of cruising, we noticed the van wasn’t running right. There was a fuel leak from the diesel side. With some quick repairs, all was good.
Onward to Churchill Falls and Happy Valley Goose Bay.
