This weekend we ventured back over the border into Alberta. We overnighted in Dawson Creek Friday and headed out Saturday morning. Had a brief stop in Rycroft, the railway siding where the wind turbine blades and other components are transferred to trucks for the last leg of their long journey to the Tumbler Ridge wind farm.
It was then onto historic Dunvegan, the site of one of the earliest fur trading posts and missionary centers (circa 1805). It is located on the banks of the Peace River where the Dunne-za Indians camped and hunted . It is now the site of the longest (550m) and only suspension bridge in Alberta. After a late lunch in Fairview we made it into Peace River township late afternoon the point where the three Rivers join - the Smoky, the Peace and the Hart. It's also the home of 12 Foot Davis, the legendary fur trader. We also visited the Peace River Museum, Mckenzie Centre, Judah hill and Sagitawa lookout.
Sunday saw us heading home through Nampa and stops at Falher (the honey capital of Canada) and Girouxville. Back to Dawson for a round of shopping and then home to TR.
Take care and stay safe and happy.......................Peter & Joan
