Day 29 - Hinton, AB to Grande Prairie, AB - ___ Miles
It was a day of rain and wind, but I left Hinton, AB and headed northwest despite the weather. The road was narrow, winding, little to no shoulder and there were a lot of rather steep hills. That there were a lot of logging trucks going the other way at a high rate of speed added to the adventure. There was only one real town along the way, Grande Cache, where I had a rather mediocre lunch, but the cafe had WiFi, so it was all good.
I ended the day in Grande Prairie, the fastest growing town in Alberta. In the last three years the population has exploded to almost 70,000 people.
