This spot was between Fort Nelson, BC and Watson Lake, Yukon. During the time of this picture, there were stretches on Alaska Highway where there is no cell phone reception. This no cell phone area extends to hundreds of Kilometers. Be extra careful! Residents are hopeful for getting complete cell phone coverage in these areas on Alaska Highway.
