Animal’s Travelogue Day 3

Here are some details of our trip from Dawson Creek, British Columbia to Watson Lake, Yukon Territory.  The next day’s target destination:  Tok, Alaska!

It’s an interesting drive.  Between Dawson Creek, BC and Fort Nelson, there are miles and miles of miles and miles.  The terrain is mostly taiga, that great northern forest that encompasses the globe in the northern hemisphere.  Between Fort Nelson and Watson Lake, Yukon Territory, where we spent last night, there is a mountain range and about five hundred miles of no internet connection, almost no gas stations and not much of anything else – besides rocks, trees, bison, elk, and a million other kinds of critters.  It was a lovely drive; I hope one day to repeat it in nicer weather.  Here are a couple of samples.  More tomorrow!
