June 4.  Long day today, 282 miles to Fort Nelson. Slow driving because of really steep grades, huge sweeping curves, and more wildlife in the road warning signs then you can count. Thanks to eagle eye Jim we saw our first wolf and later a caribou. The road has long stretches where it is straight as an arrow for as far as you can see. BORING. The shoulders are mowed way back to the lodge pole forest to give drivers a chance to see animals before they run in the road. We drove by moose pieces in the opposing lane, blood everywhere. Hope no one was hurt except the moose. Drove a section of the old Alcan highway to see a wooden curved bridge built for the original highway and still in use today. Amazing what they were doing back in the 1930's.
