Yesterday we rolled right onto the Alaska Highway, our route for the next 1,300 miles! Built in 1942, by the Army Corps of Engineers, the road is now a well travelled and completely paved thoroughfare for a bunch of RVs. We are currently in Fort St. John for two days, happily leaving behind most of the mosquitos in Grande Prairie (except for the dozen or so that stowed away in Foxy and met their demise courtesy of my electric bug swatter when we arrived). A few photos, more to come later after we explore Charlie Lake in our boat!
At Mile Zero!
This didn’t claim to be the world’s largest beaver, but I have to assume!
We took a short side trip on an out of use (re-routed) section of the Alaska Highway that includes the only remaining wooden bridge. That is Scott driving Blue and Foxy across the Kiskatinam River. We were pretty close to the weight limit so I walked over to take photos (kidding!)
Us at the campground in Fort St. John
We had a lovely conversation with the owner of this other Fox Mountain (only the second one we have ever come across in the wild). Fun to compare notes and hear how much they still love their Fox after 7 years!
Scott deemed that it was time to raise the pirate flag! Arrrrgh!
Blue got a little tire check up today and was given the all good for hitting the road again tomorrow!
