Day Four Bell 2 to Watson Lake

The scenery is second to none every minute of our trip.  There is a ton of snow on the mountains.  The rivers are raging all around us.  Some overflowing not far from the road.  At dinner tonight we learned that Watson Lake area had a torrential rain storm recently that washed the road out (we had just crossed on it) and everyone was stuck in Watson Lake for ten days . . .  said it was like a street party every night.
 One of our stops today was at Jade City.  They claim that 80% of the world's Jade comes from this area.  I was bowled over by this  . . .  I didn't even LOOK at the price tag.
 On the way we have been seeing black bears, this being the cutest of all. . . . .
