Dawson Creek, B.C.


June 2006


Gerry's niece and family live just about an hour out of Dawson Creek, so we just stopped for an hour or so to check out the Visitor Center and get the requisite photo taken at Mile Zero.  In March, 1942, troop trains of U.S. Army engineers arrived in Dawson Creek to begin the construction of the 1500+ mile Alaska  Highway and transformed Dawson Creek from a small agricultural community of 500 into a bustling center for troops and supplies.
