Full of historical exhibits

Alaska Highway Veterans & Builders Monument

Trappers cabin

Entrance to the Triple "G" Hideaway RV Park

Home for the nite - not even unhitching

We were on the road before 9:00 this morning & drove 285 miles today. We saw lots of trees & lots of oil drilling related equipment, vehicles & support services. It was cloudy today but very little rain - thank goodness.

We saw 2 deer fairly early in our drive. The Milepost kept saying watch for moose or watch for deer but we didn't see any. Finally, about 30 miles south of Fort Nelson we came across a mama bear & 2 cubs - so cute!

We're spending the nite in the Triple "G" Hideaway RV Park in Fort Nelson. It's right next to the Fort Nelson Heritage Museum so we parked - stayed hitched - & walked over to the museum. It's quite a collection of regional memorabilia. The vintage car collection & trappers cabin were worth the visit.

We'll be heading out tomorrow morning for Toad Lake.

More later...

Critter count: deer - 2 (39 total) - bear - 3 (6 total)
