Alaska Highway Mile one to Stone Mountain July 15

First, it is the Alaska Highway, not the AlCan.  I am sure all who are reading this already knew that. 

We left Dawson Creek, Mile one, at 10:00 this morning.  Sorry, I had to post this picture—everyone takes one.  I thought it was clever the car dealership has a big sign in the background that is in every picture taken in front of this sign.IMG_1178

We are camped at Mile 373, Stone Mountain campground tonight. It is a Provincial Park and the camp hosts are friendly and helpful  They directed us to site 12 where our back door opens right on the lake.  Out our driver’s side camper window is Stone Mountain, the highest summit on the Alaska Highway. There are trout, whitefish and rainbows in the lake, but of course, I don’t have a fishing license.  It has rained almost the entire day, including this evening, not hard though.  It was a good driving day.

We spotted two moose and a caribou today also.  No pictures, hopefully later.

There are several tempting hikes nearby, but we will press onward.
