Onward, Northward

Just north of Liard Hot Springs is a little town of Coal River – not too many people know, but it is also home to a a Hot Spring. A few days earlier I got directions from a local so I set out bushwacking to see what I could find. The general directions were to walk along the sandy bank of the river for a few kays, then follow and old trail to the springs – that works great when the river isn’t stupidly high. After 45mins of bushwacking I’d only gone maybe 500m and knew it was time to turn around. It was a defeat, but I have a funny feeling I’ll come south through here and try again when the river is lower.

Just a day ahead of me, a massive forest fire ripped through the area, causing people to be evacuated and massive amounts of forest to be destroyed. It made me think a lot of the forest fires in Oz… scary scary.
