The journey to the promised land

A week later than planned, we finally set off to Bella Coola and the promise of more bears.  The drive west from William’s Lake along the Bella Coola Highway doesn’t look far on a map, but it takes forever.  Thankfully unlike many of the other highways we’ve driven along in the last week or so, there were some good birds to look at on the way including stunning Mountain Bluebirds, Ruffed Grouse and a few Savannah Sparrows.  Just before we descended “The Hill”, we stopped at a viewpoint and were immediately harassed by a couple of Grey Jays, one of which even flew into the van to nick some of our food.
