The Stewart-Cassiar Highway

The Stewart-Cassiar Highway

The last 500 k of the drive to the Stikine rolls north on the classic Stewart-Cassiar Highway, connecting the southern Alsaka town (Stewart) to the Northern BC hamlet of Cassiar.

The final right hand turn on the way to the Grand Canyon of the Stikine.

The voyage started in Vancouver (bottom left) and ended at Dease Lake (high, north)

After nearly 22 hours and 1000 miles of driving the crew arrives at the putin to overcast blustery conditions.

John and Nikki outside of Gordo's Cafe in Dease Lake, British Columbia. Through a hot tip from Seth Warren we found out that Ulyssess, the owner of the cafe, would be willing to help shuttle us to and from the river (and cook up some mean cheese burgers, too)
