Dawson Creek, BC, Day 1, May 28, 2010


Dawson Creek has these two signs we have been anxious to see.

064 Hard to believe we are at the “0” mile marker [of the Alaskan Highway-Alcan] after driving 1840 from Sacramento, CA!  Just for comparison, we have 1600 miles to drive to get to Fairbanks. 

The Alcan was completed in 8 months.  On March 9, 1942 the first troop trains of the US Army Corps of Engineers arrived in Dawson Creek to begin construction of the 1523 miles of the Alaskan Highway.

Love this moose mural.  Think I am destined to see moose in the future.
