June 13: Sunny day!

We drove onward toward Dawson Creek and Mile Zero, with a sunny day. Our temperatures have been in the 40s at night and 50-60s during the day.

We made it!

We spent some time at the museum there and found more brochures about the Alaskan Highway. The highway was essentially an American effort (with Canadian approval) to create a way of getting military troops and supplies to Alaska during WWII. It's quite interesting and the effort made to get it done in record time is amazing!

We drove a section of the original highway, which goes over a wooden curved bridge. Beautiful scenery there and the bridge is a marvel.

We stayed at the Sikanni River Campground right on the river. This campground is at the bottom of a valley and a LONG 6-9 percent grade hill.

Drove: 210 miles
