|This photo is taken as you enter Chetwynd from the north.
|One of the first buildings you come to as you enter town is the white building. It is the Legion Hall and is where many of the wakes for funerals takes place.
|Chetwynd is a small town of a few thousand people but it has all the basic services, including a swimming pool. It is always busy work wise but the town itself never grows very large.
|One of the old hotels in town has been demolished (right of photo). It looks like there may have been a fire involved.
|This is a slightly better view. note the wood carving in the foreground. These wood carvings are all over town. Someone or several someones spent a lot of time carving these pieces.
|This post officially commemorates "Mile 0" of the Alaska Highway. Many people stop here to take their photos before heading north on the highway.
|I managed to snap this photo of an old heritage building as we zoomed through the town. I can't remember now if it was the town of Beaverlodge or Hythe in northern Alberta.
|This dock and waterview is in the provincial park at Sturgeon Lake, Alberta.
|Many years ago this lake was filled with sturgeon fish but there aren't any more unless they are hiding down in the deep recesses of this glacial lake. Other fish are there for the fishermen to catch.
|You will see these oil rigs all over the north country.
I'm always happy for a comfortable bed when I'm tired.
So glad you stopped by and joined me for the tour. Come again soon as we make our way to Calgary and back through beautiful British Columbia.
