Driving in wild nature, part 3: British Columbia/Поездка по дикой природе, часть 3: провинция Британская Колумбия

Day 3 on the road begins out in the Watson Lake. This place is approximately in the middle of the Alaska-Canada highway. It is on the border of Yukon and British Columbia.

Третий день в пути начинается в поселке Уотсон Лэйк, который находится примерно посередине Аляско-Канадского шоссе. Он стоит на границе канадских провинций Юкон и Британская Колумбия.



Some branches of the road lead to another Canadian province, the Northern Territories. But we are not going there.

Еще одна канадская провинция недалеко, называется Северные Территории. Но нам туда не надо.

The nature here is also very beautiful, but it feels different than up in Yukon, it's greener here.

Здесь так же красиво, хотя и по-другому, больше зеленого.



But there is still snow on the mountains and ice on the lakes. This is the middle of May.

Но тем не менее, озера еще подо льдом, а на верхушках гор лежит снег, и это в середине мая.


This lodge on the Muncho Lake is one of the stops on the road. There is a gas station, a restaurant, and an access to the lake. Inside the lodge there is a nice map of something.

Небольшой ресторан-гостиница-заправка на озере Мунчо. Тут еще можно подойти прямо к озеру. Внутри помещения большая карта непонятно чего.






And there is lots of fauna here. A brown bear.

А еще здесь много фауны. Коричневый медведь.

A black bear.

Черный медведь.
Numerous buffaloes.

Много буйволов.

Mountain sheep.

Горные овцы.


A porcupine.

И даже дикообраз.


Another rest stop on the way.

Одна из местных остановок.

With a gas station and everything.

Заправка и все такое.


The roads are getting a little wider and more flat. We are almost to Dawson Creek, which is the official mile 0 of the Alaska-Canada highway. We'll reach it tomorrow.

Дороги становятся шире и прямее. Мы почти доехали до города Доусон Крик, официального начала шоссе. Доедем завтра.
