The ferry arrived at Prince Rupert just after 1 am Saturday morning. We were asleep as the ferry reached the dock, but somehow woke up and were the last car off the boat. The Canadian border crossing was right as we were on dry land. Only a few minutes later, we were back in Canada! What a whirlwind of a trip to Alaska!
The Alaskan Highway is beautiful, but also very long. Therefore, it is great that there is plenty to see and a couple great stops along the road. The Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in Northern British Columbia is fantastic and is a must-stop (especially for the van campers who have not showered in a few days)!
Our drive to Alaska was beautiful and we were lucky enough to see plenty of wildlife. Check out the ones we were able to snag photos of!
The Alaskan Highway starts in Dawson Creek in British Columbia and was built in only 8 months during World War II by the Canadian and the US armies.
