May 13, 2006 - Mackenzie to Dawson Creek, BC
I saw another bear and a moose today on a very nice drive from Mackenzie to Dawson Creek with nearly no traffic. Weather is warm, about 62 degrees, sunny and slight breeze. It was near freezing last night in Mackenzie as evidenced by the frost on Bigfoot this morning. A case of Miller beer cost me US$31.23. The US price is half that. Rib steak is US$15 a pound. I passed on the steak and bought more beer. Kokanee at $34.25 a case - you gotta pay for quality. It goes against my nature but I'll say that I'm meeting some pretty nice people up...Jump to full entry
Aug 5, 2005 - day 26 dawson creek camp
rts: rt97 - miles 281/7103 - camp near here - there we not many campgrounds along the hiway, so you had to just pull off anywhere level - most of the time you camped where you see others - also you had to be really careful of wild bears/cougars etc even deer/moose would attack the camper... bathrooms were a real problem, especially for ladies - usually you did the bath thing at a resturant before camp - OUR ALASKA 1975 PHOTOS DAY 26Jump to full entry
Jun 21, 2005 - The Canadian Rockies are Magnificent!
We stayed three nights in Quesnel, BC with the motorhome positioned for a view of Dragon Lake. On the grassy shore Canada geese were parading their goslings for the admiration of the tourists. One family appeared to have 10 children, others as few as four. What caught our attention was something we called Mother Goose Day Care: there would be dozens of goslings gathered together, watched over by four or five adults. These adults would scare away other birds they felt were intruders and keep a wary eye on the human observers. In the town of...Jump to full entry
Jun 14, 2005 - He Picked the Best !
This is going to be a quick post this evening, we have things to do and places to go....hehe I had to put up some pictures and let you all know I'm going to be eating crow for a while. Yep....Eric picked the better side trip. Of course, we like mountain country....some people might not and would like something else. We climbed over the Heritage Hwy Summit and enjoyed beautiful views of the Rockys....lots of creeks and small valleys and I wish the weather would have been a bit better for prettier color in the pictures. We had a little...Jump to full entry
Apr 23, 2005 - Grand Prairie to Dawson Creek, BC
Today was a short day, we traveled 81 miles to Dawson Creek, BC. The beginning of the Alaska Hwy. This is one of the main reasons we are on the trip! Dad is still moving slowly, but he is getting around. This morning I had to get a few items in Walmart and as I was leaving, I got Dad the hotcaked from McDonalds in the Walmart. He was very happy about that. I met a very nice couple today that are camped near us. Pat and Wes. Wes is riding his bike form Seattle to Alaska as a fundraiser for Diabetes. It was great talking to them and we hope...Jump to full entry
Jan 13, 2003 - Part 7: Dawson Creek and the Alaska Highway
January 13, 2003 - Dawson Creek and the Alaska Highway By this time, we were starting to get really excited because we were almost to the entrance to the Alaska Highway. The highway used to be called the "ALCAN" (for Alaska/Canadian Highway). It was built by thousands of men who braved some really impossible weather to finish it. It is an engineering marvel, to be sure. Little did we know we were about to get the crap scared out of us on the first leg of the trip on the ALCAN. We stayed at the Super 8 Motel in Dawson, Creek. This was the...Jump to full entry

January 13, 2003 After eating some really great pizza across the street from the Super 8 motel in Dawson Creek the night we got in, and eating a pretty nice continental breakfast (provided by the Motel) the next morning, we packed the furry kids in the truck again and took off for the Alaska Highway.
