We got it. The next two days brought some of the most scenic riding any of us had ever enjoyed. The Cassiar delivered miles and miles of gently swooping turns through some of Canada’s oldest old-growth forest. We had several bear sightings, but saw no ice road truckers and passed almost no other motorists. Dease Lake was a bit bleak, so we stopped for breakfast a bit south at the delightful Tatogga Lake Resort, eating a hearty meal in a knotty pine dining room surrounded by stuffed moose, elk, grizzly, wolves, and deer.
