Atlin, B.C.

We backtracked a bit today and visited Atlin in our car. The road to Atlin from the Alaska Highway was gravel about half of the way but in good shape. Traffic was light. There were great views of scenery.

This a really nice sign along the road.

Even the rest areas were nice.

We stopped to look for mountain goats at a viewing area but did not see any.

We saw several bears on the drive. A young grizzly on the side of the road.

A large back bear crossed the road in front of us on the way back. We had a good view of a mother grizzly with 2 cubs. Big Momma grizzly with two new cubs, didnt seem to even notice the number of cars taking photos of them as they grazed along side of the road.

The town overlooks beautiful lake Atlin. We had an excellent lunch at a small restaurant on first street. These are some pictures from Atlin. This is an old tour boat at Atlin.

Roxie and Barbara took a short break on this psychedelic bench down by the old tour boat.
