Summit Lake to Kiskatinaw Provincial Park, Alaska Highway

11 September 2015 - Friday

The wind continued this morning, so we hit the road again. The fall colours were spectacular. The drive from Summit Lake to Fort Nelson is one of my favourites.

We decided to stay the night at the Kiskatinaw provincial park.
We like this spot because there are lots of good places to walk the dogs!
