While in Dawson Creek we drove out to the quiet and scenic Kiskatinaw Bridge. The bridge has a historic history and was built by the US Army as part of there route to Alaska. We had a picinic lunch and enjoyed this very peaceful area You can stop and stroll on the bridge and enjoy even more spectacular views.
We visited in late Sept., and the campground was closed, but we wandered around and along the riverbank. The bridge was impressive. Lovely spot. Looks as though it'd be a nice place to camp in the summer.
We carpooled out to this bridge and walked over and back. Very interesting engineering. Worth 30 minutes of time to take a look.
Kiskatinaw ! Try saying that 5 times fast. You venture off the Alaskan highway and enter a large crescent (the old Alaska highway) where you can drive the entire thing and get back on route to Fort St. John or Dawson Creek (depending On your direction). Now a lot of people might just think it's a large old bridge... But... 更多
It was nice to see that the first bridge of the Alaskan highway was kept and still in working condition. Great place to take some pictures. Plenty of room to pull off the road. The canyon was beautiful too.
A unique curved bridge that was key to the building of the Alaska Highway 74 years ago. Room to pull over and have a close look or go to the camp ground below the bridge on the south side and walk under the bridge and see how a wooden bridge was built decades ago. Good stop for anyone interested in... 更多
Another must see along the Alaskan Hwy. and while in Dawson's Creek. Part of the original hwy. built in 1942-1943 rebuilt apparently but a big part of the history here.
