Remembering Alaska - May 2014 #4

That snow is a remnant of last winter.  I think the shape of that mountain is unusual - rounded off.

See the lake off in the distance?  Every mile has something worth seeing.

Like little water falls.

Many waterfalls are located far off the road and require that you hike to them.  Tippy says, "We ain't hiking no where".  This waterfall is right along the highway.  No hiking.

The town of Dawson Creek is the beginning of the Alaska Highway.  It is located in British Columbia just over the border with Alberta.

There is a "round-about" at Dawson Creek.  We want to go North so we take the third exit which amounts to turning left.

It's hard to get a good picture while driving around a "round about" but in the left side of the picture is a sign indicating that this is the beginning of the Alaska Highway.

I just kept going around the "round about" until I could get a better picture of the "beginning of the Alaska Highway" sign.  At home we call these traffic circles "Traffic Circles" - Here they are called "round abouts" - My GPS calls them "Rotaries".

Tomorrow, we will leave Dawson Creek and start on the Alaska Highway.  Here's a preview.

These pictures were taken by Ron, Tippy and Treky in May 2014.
