Alaska Expedition 2010 - Day 5-6
Outside our hotel in Edmonton we saw a pair of absolutely gorgeous Swainson's Hawks. After breakfast, we headed north toward Dawson Creen, British Columbia. This was my first day riding with the boys in the Excursion. It was a beautiful day, 57 degrees F at 8:15am. We headed north on Hwy 2 to Hwy 16W to Hwy 43N to Dawson Creek. Gas cost us $86.6/L Canadian. The woods are changing to spruce, pine, aspen and white birch on rolling hills. We stopped for lunch at the Virginia Hills Rest Stop around noon and it was a balmy 70 degrees F.
