The drive from Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson goes through 300 miles of forest. We have a new appreciation for the term “ribbon of highway.”
At one point along that ribbon of highway, we hit the 2000 mile mark! We ate chocolate to celebrate.
I also found out that the monument marking “Mile Zero” that stands in the center of town is not actually the start of the highway; that’s a block away, under this sign. Go figure.
