Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson
The sign was moved from the actual mile 0 as it was in a rotary and created a major traffic problem. Or they moved it to the center of town to get people to shop.... depends who you believe.
We took a short detour off the current Alaska Highway to a section of the old highway to checkout this bridge. It is constructed entirely of wood, and is the last one remaining on the Alaska Highway. It actually was pretty cool.
The car shudders a bit when they pass!
We have 2-way radios to communicate while driving and coordinate stops for lunch or different things to see.
The drive to Fort Nelson wasn't too bad. We stayed at a campground right in town (tiny town!)
After making some dinner we hit the campgrounds bar/cafe for some homemade Wild-berry Pie and Ice cream. It was good even if the ice cream was just soft serve that they brought in a mug. I guess in Canada they don't do Pie Ala Mode
