Yessiree, we are actually on the Alaska Highway!And what is the first thing we do? After checking into the Mile Zero (0) RV Park. After we get settled. After we do a few loads of laundry. After we go to an A & W Root Beer Stand, you know, the older looking ones, and pick up some late lunch / early dinner and some root beer (float for Marcia). Why, we went over to this famous icon of the Alaska Highway, eat, and then add our addition to the monument.
This little girl Skruffy is one lucky dog. Found out on the streets of Pine Bluff Arkansas, abandoned after having a liter of pups, infested with heart worms, she became a Library Mascot, and now she has visited some 40 states, 2 Provinces, and has been in pictures of Yosemite, Glacier, Yellowstone, Crater Lake, and other National Parks, Monuments, and just general photo opportunities. Now she sits on the monument of the start of the Alaska Highway. What a wonderful doggie life she is living!
We drove around a bit taking a few pictures…but tomorrow is going to be sightseeing day, and grocery shopping day, and another check on fluids levels and stuff like that. Then on Thursday, off we go. I have mapped our trip out to Watson Lake in the Yukon, but still need to add gas stations. Will show more about Dawson Creek tomorrow…now I have to go get that little girl off the monument, she is probably freezing by now.
