Journal Entry:
In the morning we drove about 150 miles to the start of the Cassiar. Managed to destroy my windshield on the way when a truck going the other way kicked up a rock, (a 4 inch hole). We spent most of the day driving the 450 miles of the most beautiful road I've ever been on, the Cassiar Highway.

We saw bears! Quite a few. We also got lost (took Route 37A instead of 37) and saw a couple beaver swimming (and diving when they saw us), more bears, and a spectacular glacier, Bear Glacier. We both agreed it was the best 50 miles we'd spent, (even if it was an accident).

We ended up spending the night at a commercial campground, but that was OK because it was late and we were a little worried about all the bears we'd seen.
