Rain, rain and more rain. A cold and wet start until I reach Whatson lake at noon. From here I head into British Columbia and am immediately confronted with heavy smoke from the Forrest fires around me. The highway just reopened a few days ago but the wind pushes the smoke across the road. Very tough going as it affects my lung and eyes. After around 100 km it gets better and I enter the beautiful Liard valley. A huge group of bisons runs in front of me across the road.
