On the way back to Dawson we saw this strange looking truck.It's not like a typical 18 wheeler!
In the center of Dawson Creek is the Mile 0 post with the 3 flags on top; Canada, British Columbia and Dawson Creek. The post is in the middle of an intersection.
Back at the campground, our group gathered to hear a talk by the Visitor Center. She gave us some interesting facts about the building of the Alaska Highway. It was started just after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and completed in only 8 months! The original road was 1523 miles from Dawson Creek to Fairbanks with 133 bridges and over 8000 culverts. The road was built by 11,000 us troops and 16,000 American and Canadian civilians using 7,000 pieces of equipment. And not your modern day equipment either!
In the early afternoon some of the guys did guy things, while others stood around holding up a truck.
See ya down the road.
