Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson

5-3-2013:  Once the skies cleared, it feels like spring may be on the way.  Today north from Dawson Creek on Hwy #97 – the Alaska Hwy.

Just north is the longest wooden bridge in North America along the old highway.

Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson 004

MM 70 – POW!!!!!!! a rock ding in the windshield just above the driver’s view!  Dang it!

MM72.4 We stopped at Sheppard’s Inn for breakfast – good stop! Great homemade breads.  Just 5 days ago, this area had a total white out blizzard --- so that’s why there’s still so much SNOW!!!!

Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson 017


The road thus far has been very good.  Arrived Fort Nelson – 280 miles today.  Dry camping along side road for the night.  Things are warming up today 60’s = MUD!!! Towns are sweeping the sidewalks, the streets and scooping the dirt.

Sunsets about ~8:30 with twilight onto dusk ~9:30pm

This is a great guide to fixing the windshield with a kit from WalMart.
