A nice day, still chilly but no rain so we chose the right plan yesterday. Chetwynd started the chainsaw carving project as part of its "REndezvous 92" celebrating the 50th anniversary of the construction of the Alaska Highway.They commissioned the Welcome sign wih 3 bears and the community liked it so well they started having fund raisers to bring more carving to town. In 2005 Chetwynd hosted the 1st annual international chainsaw carving championship hosting 7 carvers from BC and the US. In 2006 there were 12 from across North America and in 2007 12 from all across the world including the winner from Japan. There are now 64 carvings around town. But some are in schools and other buldings not open to the public until summer. We still had a great day and got to see alot of the town and talk to many people. With Dave's help driving all over town, I got 37 pictures, I won't post them all but you have to see how intricate some of these are. After a nice stop, tomorrow we head out again. 1st. to Dawson Creek to get a good photo of the mile"0" post and then north with another small change in plans, Dave signed us up for a "Deh Cho" travel passport- they are drawing for an $11,000. diamond at the end of summer but we can't make the whole route- you need 4 stamps rom each of 3 providences,BC,Alberta & the Northwest Territories. Even so I will have more stamps similar to our US National passport stamps and it convinced Dave he wants to drive up to the Northwest Territories so he can put it on our map. So we will go up to Ft. Nelson and then make a side trip to Ft. Liard before getting to the Yukon and then Alaska . Stay tuned for more info and pictures as we "JourneyOn"
