Jasper National Park to Dawson Creek, BC

It rained most of the night, and while we never got wet, I wouldn't say we were dry either. In desperate need of dehumidification, we broke camp, got fuel, and were back at Bear's Paw Bakery by 6:30 am.

And chatty Kathy was just yammering along. Around 9:30, when the caffeine kicked in, I was a little more personable. We drove through Grand Cache and Grand Prairie and tiny places with no names, but beautiful sights.

We stopped in Beaverlodge at the arts & cultural center which also doubles as their tourism office. They told us that all of the neon yellow fields are canola (or rapeseed) and used to make - yes, you guessed it - canola oil.

We crossed into another time zone at the British Columbia border. We headed on to Dawson Creek to check into our hotel. We spent the afternoon doing our chores- Ready to hit the road early tomorrow for a full 8 hours of driving on the Alaska Highway.
