Tourism Attractions, Companies and Links

Alaska Highway

Website:  www.hellonorth.com
With the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the US Army felt it was necessary to create a land bridge from the lower 48 States to the northern part of North America as a defensive response to the attack in the Pacific.  The highway was to start in Dawson Creek, BC and finish in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Starting in March of 1942 and finishing nine months later, seven regiments of engineers (approximately 11,000 people), around 16,000 American and Canadian civilians, and 7000 pieces of equipment were used to create 1500 miles of highway.  The highway was cut through some of the toughest terrain and conditions in North America.  Swamps, muskeg, mountain passes, conquering storms of mosquitoes and exceptionally cold temperatures put all involved up against the true tests of what Mother Nature has to offer in the North.  Today the Highway is a massive tourist attraction, open year around it carries travelers on a journey through wildlife, landscapes and terrain that are completely unique to northern wilderness.  Some highlights on the trip include, natural hot springs, The Sign Forest in Watson Lake, the Top-of-the-World Highway- linking the Yukon to Alaska, and incredible camping, hiking and wildlife watching.  In 1996 the Alaska Highway was designated as the 16th International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.

Peace Region Paleontology Research Centre’s Dinosaur Discovery Gallery

Website:  www.trmf.ca
Between 2000 and 2001 dinosaur footprints and BC’s second dinosaur bone were discovered just outside of Tumbler Ridge, BC, on Flatbed Creek.  A crucial find was made later, BC’s first accumulation of dinosaur skeletal material in Western Canada was found in the same area.  The material is also by far the oldest dinosaur bones in Western Canada.  In 2004, funding helped create the Peace Region Paleontology Research Centre which holds collections of not only dinosaur bones and footprints, but also fossil corral, plants, and other types of fossils that makes the South Peace region a hotspot for Paleontology.  The Research Centre has been expanded and contains several new and enhanced exhibits including a full-scale re-creation of a 100 million-year-old dinosaur track environment.  The centre also has an interactive theatre and gilt shop.
