The tale of two Highway 97s

I notice that a new website touts tourism along Highway 97 in British Columbia and south of the border. That effort has a long history.

Back in the early 1950s, our chamber of commerce took the lead in organizing a Highway 97 group that extended from Oregon all the way to Prince George, B.C. Extension of the highway north from Prince George to Dawson Creek and the Alaska Highway was one of the goals, and we took part in several caravans up north to push that program.
