On the mend...

A close friend of mine moved to Prince George two years ago, and I have made several treks there since. Its a long drive, scary drive (through the Pine Pass of the Rocky Mountains). The town itself is on a comeback. Several years ago, it went belly up, people were moving out, schools closing, stores shut down. You can see the slow comeback now, but it makes for a not so pretty town!

The Drive

When going to Prince George from Alberta, there is only one road to take. You have to travel through the Pine Pass, which is a long, curvey, narrow highway in the mountains. You don't have cell phone service for 3 hours, and if you break down, you are in big trouble! I went through it a few days ago, and on the way there, it was pouring rain, the highway clear and flooding. The next day I came home, and you couldn't see where the road was because of all the snow! If you plan on driving through there, be careful and pack an emergency bag!

    Where is your USA page? You've been there 24 hours, with internet AND still haven't added the tab! I'm packing .... too many shirts but the weather is going to get warmer while I'm up there, so layers will be needed :)

    Prince George doesn't sound famous for its hotels, eh? Kat

    I think next time I'm in Prince George I'll choose a different hotel.
