Alaska Hwy - Night 1

We left Dawson Creek Milepost 0 about 8 AM this morning and went 214 miles. We found a permanently closed Provincial Park and we all (6 RVs) made it home for the night. We had pull thrus, back ins etc. We are about 1/4 mile off the Alaska Highway. We are very proud of ourselves finding this little place. It's located 217.2 from Dawson Creek and the coords are 57.97112N and 122.7773W if you are ever in the area. The road getting here was pretty good with a couple of rough spots but nothing major.
