It wasn't long after we got on the road this morning that the scenery began to change. The wheat and canola fields soon gave way to the beautiful green forests, but we did sit at a construction hold up for a few minutes which gave me a chance to take a picture of one last farm scene. The the excitement builds as we leave Alberta and cross into British Columbia and approach milemarker 0 in Dawson Creek, the beginning of the famous Alaska Highway, over 1700 miles from home.
We are in Fort Nelson where it was 81 when we arrived at 4:30 this afternoon. The car thermometer hit 84 at one point this afternoon. It was a long day and I am ready for the shower and then bed, only to get up early and go even further tomorrow, hopefully landing in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory tomorrow night. We have some beautiful scenery to go through tomorrow.
Good night and God bless.
