Left behind the beautiful Peace River valley at the Town of Peace River and headed through Grimshaw, Berwyn, Fairview and then reached another beautiful historic park located in the Peace River Valley, being Historic Dunvegan located right beside the famous Dunvegan suspension bridge which spans the Peace River.
This park has some historic buildings here from the late 1800’s and an interpretive centre with friendly staff who are happy to let you know about the area. The park has beautiful picnic areas, a campground and located right beside is also Dunvegan Gardens.
Well tonight we have reached the official end of the Northern Woods and Water Highway as it reaches Dawson Creek which is well known as being Mile Zero of the Alaska Highway. One of the first things that we saw when we pulled into town was the beautiful grain elevator which is now an Art Gallery.
We will go check this out tomorrow morning. We are settled into the Mile 0 Campground right in town and were thrilled to see all the different licence plates on the motor homes and campers from all over the United States and Canada. We took a quick walk around the campground and counted units from at least 6 different provinces, 15 different states and 1 international licence plate from Switzerland. It is so interesting to talk to people and learn where they are from and all the places they have travelled. Dawson Creek is probably the one place that you will find such a huge mixture of people from different places as some prepare to go up the Alaska highway and some are coming back down.
