Dawson Creek to Watson Lake - July 11, 2017
As mentioned on the previous page, we are attempting to accomplish several of the Iron Butt Association certifications. While we are going to make every effort to accomplish the task, we do recognize the potential for setbacks. If that happens on the first day of our attempt, then we pick up where we left off. Our day may or may not start in Dawson Creek as proposed but would end in Watson Lake in the event we have to scrap the attempt.
Watson Lake, located in the Yukon territory of Canada sits at mile marker 635 on the Alaskan Highway and close to the British Columbia border. Named for American trapper and prospector Frank Watson who settled there at the end of the 19th Century, the town is home to fewer than 2,000 residents.
Watson Lake is home to the Northern Lights Centre which showcases the phenomena and splendor of the Aurora Borealis. For more information on this scientific wonder and for the aurora forecast, go to:
We will be monitoring the forecast as we get closer to ensure we are in the best spot possible to observe the activity and hopefully capture some amazing shots.
