Dawson Creek, British Columbia – City Profile

While a large portion of British Columbia lives on the western side of the Rocky Mountains, there are still those towns in the East. The be more exact Dawson Creek is actually east of all the mountain ranges and sits in a prairie.  Considering that most of British Columbia lives inside the large Rocky Mountain Range it’s definitely not like most of the other cities in the Province.  The temperatures are fairly extreme getting as low as -50 degrees farenheit into the mid-90’s.
