Alaska Highway - Part I

The first leg of our trip north on the Alaska Highway went from Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson, BC. The roads were wide and in fairly good condition and there wasn’t much construction. The countryside was a carpet of green as far as the eye could see and still lots of water everywhere! At one point there were eight motor homes all lined up – our five plus three others. We kept enough distance between us so that cars and trucks could pass safely. Walkie-talkies helped communicate about traffic and also wildlife sightings along the way. Unfortunately, we had the distinction of being the first coach to experience windshield damage. A rock thrown from a passing truck left a golf ball size imprint on the passenger side. We made a quick stop at the local glass shop in Fort Nelson for repairs and we were back on the road. Hopefully that will be the worst thing to happen!!!
