There is an interesting story on how it got it's name. Back in 142 when the Alaska Hwy was being built, there was a problem crossing the river as the bridge hadn't been built yet. Therefore, everyone had to be towed across. The owner of the establishment there named their lodge Towed River Lodge and somehow it became Toad River. The little cafe had pretty good food. It's claim to fame, though, is the thousands of hats on the walls. We had wished we brought one of our Anaheim Ducks Stanley Cup Winners Hat to add to the collection. Next time. We actually met a Chicago Blackhawks fan while we were there. We talked a little hockey, both of us agreeing that whoever won that series would go on to win the Cup, which as I am writing this a week or so later, it did come to pass that the Blackhawks won. The western teams have sure be dominate in the Finals the last 10 years, winning the majority of the games.
