Third Day Drive on Beautiful British Columbia to Alaska

It was Wednesday June 17, 2020 our third day driving to Alaska through beautiful British Columbia, Canada. 

We left Caron Creek RV park in Chetwynd around 8:46 A.M.  A little late start that we would have like but at least we are on the road before 9am.

From Chetwynd BC, Canada we went ahead and used the Braden Road near Dawson Creek instead of going to Hudson's Hope Hwy 29. This way we skip Dawson Creek.

Our Stops

Our first stop of the day was in Taylor Brake Check and Rest Area. There was a construction going on so it was traffic a little bit. We ate our breakfast there at the rest stop while we watched drivers waiting for the pilot car to take them thru the construction area.

Our second stop of the day was at Pink Mountain (Kilometer Post 229 DC) it's a large informal gravel turnout. We stopped there for a little bit.  Joel went to talk to the guy who had been trying to keep up with us, he also stopped for a short break. It turned out he is a military going or moving to Fort Wainwright Fairbanks, AK.

The black dot on the side of the roads are black bears, we saw several of them. One of the joy I found when driving on Alaska highway in British Columbia
