Here's another cool cub stop - this time for those flying the Alaska Highway between Fort Nelson and Watson Lake.
On all the previous trips between Watson Lake and Fort Nelson I simply flew the airway because it is about an hour shorter in my cub, and also usually better weather because of lower elevations.
But on the way up this year there was some beautiful weather between these two points, so decided to take the scenic route and follow the Alaska Highway instead. I'm glad I did, lots of interesting wildlife to observe in those mountains!
About an hour out of Fort Nelson there is a wonderful little mountain village called Toad River, and it has a gravel strip across the highway from Toad River Lodge. You can land here and have a bite to eat, or get some autogas from their pumps if you need it. I stopped for lunch.
Here is a picture of the strip on final, landing to the west. The strip is the gravel area just to the right of the highway, and the lodge is on the left side of the highway (you see mostly their parking area in this picture).
