Last September, my family and I stopped at the Historic Hat Creek Ranch after a trip to 100 Mile House. We took a stagecoach ride on the Cariboo Waggon Road, which is the original road from the Cariboo gold rush. After speaking with our horse wrangler, we discovered he is a blood relation to Don McLean, who was the Hudson Bay Company Chief Trader for the area and the original founder of the Hat Creek Roadhouse.
It was fascinating to not only tour the heritage site, but to feel that a part of the history is still alive.
