Fort McMurray was the northernmost city of the 2017 WVO Road Trip
We had been driving for days, and we needed to find a hotel asap. We cruised the town for a bit to find a good hotel and get some more road trip supplies.
About half the town burned down in last year’s fires. So the GPS was hit or miss. Regardless, we found a place to stay, and the place was suffuse with contractors and laborers. Most were fascinated with the Veggie Van. Since a lot of them had been cooped up in Fort McMurray for too long, they were really chatty.
The next day, we visited the Oil Sands Discovery Center Museum. Pretty cool stuff.
It had an interior museum and also a huge lot with all sorts of mining machines scattered all over the place.
Overall, the Discovery Center was worth the visit.
