You know that saying about good things coming in small packages? If the package were a town, that town would be Grimshaw.
“The start of your trip north to Yellowknife is Mile Marker Zero of the Mackenzie Highway. There is an attractive monument and historical plaque where you can get your picture taken before you hear into the wilderness. There is a nearby park and trail and from the marker you can look south and west and see the Peace River Valley. A northern Alberta landmark not to be missed.”
