As we traveled east of Houston and Smithers BC, we got into the thick of the Canadian Rockies.
For a major east-west highway, there wasn’t a lot of traffic. We approached the outskirts of Mount Robson Provincial Park, one of the most spectacular parks in the world. If this wasn’t already embedded inside a context of continuous Rocky mountains, this “provincial” park would be a fully-funded national park anywhere else in the world.
We turned the corner on the Yellowhead, and then saw a perfectly framed Mount Robson on the horizon. This is crazy. This peak is a mere “provincial” park.
