Pull-Out Between McBride and Dunster, Bristish Columbia

Exploration Museum & Ancient Forest Trail

Jonathan and I drove into Prince George today to the Exploration Museum. We had a little bit of a hard time finding the place but once we did we had fun. They had several neat displays. There was a motor that Jonathan enjoyed working with. They had dinosaur bones on display. There was a sports booth where people could try out hockey, soccer or basketball. Jonathan and I even had the opportunity to play a game of pool on an old fashioned pool table. It was a fun day.

We got back to the RV just in time to help Tom pack things up. We pulled out and got some driving in tonight then found a pull-out a little ways past McBride and decided to call it a night.
