Beautiful country, that is where I grew up.
Yes, the Peace River area. Its a long drive from Vancouver, I can't imagine driving there from Virginia and then up to Alaska, but then I can't imagine my boss giving me the time to do it either. I guess you have to be either retired or a senator.

I remember waking up to 4 inches of snow on the ground one September long weekend!
Of course if you leave to early, you also miss the dog sledding, the river freeze up and all the moose on the road.
