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.
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!!!!
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
