Alaska Highway - Dawson Creek, BC - Watson Lake, YT


June 2006


From Mile Zero in Dawson Creek, BC, we drove 282 miles to Fort Nelson where we stayed overnight, then drove 318 miles the next day to Watson Lake, Yukon.  With the latest edition of the Milepost as our guide,  we took full advantage of the many pullouts and viewpoints along the way to stretch, take pictures, enjoy the scenery, and wash the bugs off the windshield.  Since it is daylight till around Midnight, we had no reason to rush.  Every new curve presented a new photo opportunity.  We saw stone sheep, caribou and even a bear, as well as bison and wild horses.  We also got our first ding in the windshield.
