Yesterday I wrote about my journey between Edmonton and Prince George, and the fact that I took several back roads, service roads and dirt roads – all in order to see more than just the highway. It started with a small lake at daybreak just before Jasper National Park, and ended with a detour to the mall in Prince for a coffee. But that wasn’t worth shooting.

The railway line that snakes its way through the Yellowhead Pass and up into Alberta. This was close to Yellowhead Lake.

Wooden bridge over the Fraser River at Tete Jaune Cache, British Columbia.
Graffiti under the bridge, and the incredible colours of the Fraser.
The old Dunster station, in Robson Valley across the Fraser River from the Yellowhead Highway. The station was constructed in 1913 and named Dunster by a Grand Trunk Pacific Railway inspector after his hometown in England.
