From Chetwynd, I drove east to Dawson Creek, milepost zero of the Alaska Highway and then drove to Fort St. John. I crossed several muddy rivers that normally would hold some interest: Halfway, Buckinghorse, Beatton, Sikanni Chief, and Prophet.
Continued driving to Fort Nelson. This section of the highway is long, flat and not particularly interesting. It was 45 degrees F and raining. When asked when it would stop raining, the hotel manager replied, “never.” When I told that to the waitress, she said, “You are lucky it isn’t snowing.”
