The Route We Took: Rte 389 N / E to Rte 500 (Road in decent condition due to light rain. Anticipate dusty, groomed trail on dry days)
Lodging: Two Seasons, Labrador City, NL, CA
Food: Restaurant at the Hotel (Don't order the house white wine. House red isn't great, but better than the white.)
Driving from Manic Cinq to Labrador City on a glorified snow mobile path:
Up and at’em the next morning, we were fed, showered, and on the road by 11 AM, which by Canadian standards is late. Ok, by my mom’s standards it’s late.
The pavement ended shortly after leaving the Manic-Cinq facility. Mom and I used to joke about a “Pavement Ends, 13 mi.” sign was saw in South Dakota once. Literally, the pavement ended, and we were on a dirt road for 13 miles. That doesn’t even come close to this experience.
