Beautiful British Columbia on the Alaska Highway: a hint of true North

batterd spruce trees blue, pink, yellow sky silouetteWe’re in Fort Nelson, far north British Columbia on our way to Alaska. The internet is limited and slow, so thisĀ  photo will have to tell the story for now. This was taken after 10pm through the window of Turtle at a boondock on the Alaska Highway, or as the Canadians have signed it, the Great Northern. I prefer Great Northern; more romantic than the Alaska Highway.

Long days of slantlongĀ  light, and the landscape rolling off to infinity, makes for a magical sense of otherness, of strange timelessness. We love the road, and this one is special.
