9/3/2009 - Dawson Creek, BC

We spent most of the day in the town of Dawson Creek exploring two museums. The following two signs are at the visitor center and museum.

And this sign also is at the visitor center. As you can see, it marks the beginning of the Alaska Highway. However, for us, it marked the end of the highway.

While at the visitor center, we toured their museum and saw a very interesting 60 minute film of the building of the Alaska Highway. There were some very tough men who withstood the terrain and weather to cut the road through over 1500 miles in just 8 months. After lunch we went to the Alaska Highway museum where they also showed a very interesting 60 minute film.
