Check out our collection of burning forest fires over the summer.
I am sad and sorry to report that after 7 days of forest fire smoke cloaking our city; that surely would be nothing more than a daily grind to 3 million people in Los Angeles (alas, we are only 80,000)...when the air finally did clear, finally cleared!, ... I went out for a nice lung exhilerating walk and breath of fresh air, to celebrate and enjoy my self, to my disapointment I encountered a total of five to ten people on the cities sidewalks to share with. In a total of 4-5 hours.
The rest had seized the opprtunity by hopping into their SUV,s trucks and 4x4's...in what seemed to be that typical 'yahooozah' type style only a Prince Georgian would know.
I lost sheer track of the number of vehicles with 4-5 empty seats. Many were crew cab trucks with 4 empty seats and one driver. This town just loves it trucks and jeeps and SUVs. I did see a few pedal cyclists. Walkers and cyclers tend to be very far and few inbetween.
But some links in case you are interested in our great province.
Its an awesome place to travel ...
And there be just a small miniscule sample, the most I could assemble in 5 minutes. If you really want to take a long drink from the waters here for a good travel experience, I would recommend taking your time, such as a good 2-5 days to cover between Vancouver and Prince George (and that would be about 1/7th of the good mainsteam routes to take for travel)
...otherwise youre just letting the scenery pass you by through closed windows...
International and out of province visitors, great place to start is here...
