We visited Bill and Judy in 1999 when they lived in Smithers, BC
It was the most memorable trip because Bill and Judy were amazing tour guides.
Bill knew the best places to eat and introduced us to dark ale.
Every time I order dark beer, I think of him (and Judy).
When we look at the photos, we are eternally grateful for such a wonderful visit.
