My wife and I will be driving from Yellowknife to Fort Nelson, BC with a stop at Fort Simpson in July. I've read various descriptions about the Liard Highway and am wondering, what is it really like to drive?
Can you make good time, or do the gravel sections slow you down considerably? We don't want to speed, as we hope to enjoy the scenery and wildlife, but also hope the road doesn't become a stress. Any thoughts?
