We drove into Dawson Creek early to see the town and get a photo in front of the sign at the roundabout in the center of things. After that, we buttoned up the bus, drove back toward town, fueled and hooked the Jeep up. We went back to the mile zero point, circled the roundabout just so we could say that we began at the beginning, and headed north! For the most part, driving this section of the Alaska Highway is a piece of cake. This is oil and gas country, and the modular units in picture three are living accommodations for folks working in the industry. there are a number of these "cities" along the way. There is also resultant heavy truck traffic on the highway. It's basically level, with flawless pavement and rolling hills. The only real exceptions are the drop into the Peace River Valley to cross a major steel-decked bridge, and a similar drop into a small canyon housing the Sikkani Chief River. There is a small campground just beyond that bridge, and we decided to spend the night there. Like a lot of the campgrounds on the AH, this one is remote, small and pretty much of a mud puddle. However, the campsite we had was right on the river, which made up for any of the negatives. Milepost 3730.
