First Day on the Alaska Hwy

We left Dawson Creek this morning around 9:30. Ron & I lost another hour yesterday! We started on the Alaska Highway this morning and are finding The Milepost very helpful in locating diesel fuel, pulloffs for driving breaks, lunch stops, and interesting points along the way.

We can see for very long distances on this stretch of the highway. Ahead of us at one point we were all craning our necks to focus in on an object ahead on the left side of the road. We knew it was some sort of animal. As we drove closer with excitement., we learned it was a motorcycle rider taking a break! We were so disappointed! Still waiting to see our first moose. Connie says we will definitely know when she sees a moose!

We are staying at Ft. Nelson, BC, tonight and tomorrow night to take a break from the road. We are still 1,000 + miles from Alaska! Seeing beautiful forests and mountains. We hope to be in AK by Thursday.
