Suspension Bridge on Alaska HighwaySuspension Bridge on Alaska HighwaySuspension Bridge on Alaska Highway

This is the last suspension bridge left on the Alaska Highway - - Built in 1942

Took a couple of photos of the suspension bridge over the Liard River just south of Liard Hot Springs. It is a really prett bridge and is the last suspension bridge on the Alaska Highway. The next excitement was encountering a small herd of bison that included several calves. I took a bunch of pictures and most of them came out really well. Then just north of Muncho Lake we saw a couple of rock sheep close to the road and got photos. Then we got to Muncho Lake and what a beautiful lake it is! It has really clear water that is tinted by the rock dust suspended in it. It was also most still, so I took several photos of the reflections of the mountains. South of Muncho Lake we came upon some more rock sheep - - some more photos. Next was Summit Lake, the highest pass on the Alaska Highway at a little over 4000 feet. After Summit, the road descends out of the mountains to Ft. Nelson where we saw the northernmost traffic signal in BC (we hit it green and didn’t have to stop). The campgrounds in Ft Nelson looked mostly full so we drove on - - finally stopped at Sikanni River RV Park for the night. The campground was right next to the Sikanni River.
