We woke up to blue sky & sunshine today! We did have a few sprinkles during our drive but the majority of the day we enjoyed sunshine & warmer temps - in the low - mid 60s (F).
We left the mountains behind when we left Grande Cache. But we didn't leave the forests behind. We discovered that managed forests (Aspen & pine), wheat, & oil & gas drilling/fracking are the main industries in this area. This diversity made for an interesting drive.
We got settled into our rv park early this afternoon. It was actually earlier than we thought because when we went from Alberta to British Columbia we went from Mountain Daylight Savings Time to Pacific Time (no daylight savings time here).
Our first stop in Dawson Creek was the Visitor Centre - we left with an armfull of info. It'll take us days to go thru it all. Since we don't have days, we'll have to speed read.
Looking forward to seeing what Dawson Creek has to offer before we head on up the Alaska Hwy. So, more later...
