day 10: trek to ak

The Big 3 today! 1) Passed halfway mark between El Paso, TX and Anchorage, AK. 2) Entered a new province, British Columbia. 3) Visited Dawson Creek and the 0 Mile Marker of the Alaskan Highway! Yahoo!

We left Hinton and drove 336 Miles/541 Km today. The roads were clear with no rain or snow. A family of three caribou stood along side of the road waiting for us. What an amazing treat! Photo coming soon… taken on a different camera.

We hit a bit of construction before Grand Cache but found a gem of a Visitor’s Information Center in the town. Today’s route included lots of hills and curves which were a bit tricky with the strong wind. The area seemed to be home to industries of farming, logging, oil refineries and coal mines.

After passing through Dawson Creek, we anxiously began looking for kilometer (formerly mile) markers til Fort St. John, where we settled for the night.

Note for Packer Backers: A man walked out of a restaurant wearing a Green Bay hat. He told me he went to a game in Lambeau 3 years ago. He was quick to introduce me to his friend in the doorway. This man delivered the new goal posts to Lambeau in 1998.  Just wanted to share with the fans.
