I just drove 1056 miles over two days to retrieve my wood canvas canoe from Grand Forks, BC, CA.
I took an asphalt shortcut up and over a Colville forest ridge line from Gran Coulee to Republic, WA.
One amazing scene was where several miles of guard rail posts had burned entirely away during recent wildfires .
In some cases there were 6 X 6 inch holes in the ground where the pressure treated posts had burned.
The metal guard rails were warped and just laying where they dropped.
