Tuesday, Wednesday, July 26, 27, 2011

Tuesday, we left Tok (after our final breakfast at Fast Eddy’s in mainland Alaska), and headed towards Haines, AK.  This requires a drive east to Haines Junction in the Yukon, and then south to the coast.  The road from the US (Alaska) border towards Haines Junction is a road on perma-frost which means that it is full of frost heaves.  It is even worse than I-10 form the LA border to New Orleans.

Along the way, we stopped at the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge visitor center for some information on bird migration, etc.  The entrance door had a cute bird.


After leaving the Refuge visitor center, we drove into Canada, in the Yukon.DSC01397DSC01395

We stopped at the southern end of Kluane Lake (the largest lake in the Yukon) for the night at a beautiful pull-off.  Jim and Pat, and Gary and Mary spent the night with us.  These three pictures not only show off our RVs, but the beautiful view we have.DSC03854DSC03855DSC03856

Wednesday, we left Kluane Lake, and drove to Haines Junction, where we hung a right down to the coast and Haines, AK.  The drive continued in the Yukon, then into British Columbia, and finally back into the US at Haines, AK.  Here is the back of Mary & Gary’s rig going through US Customs ahead of us, and the US Border sign..DSC03857DSC03858

After dinner, we, Marilyn, I, Dennis and Carol drove out along the shore to see if we could see any bears along the Chilkoot river.  We saw momma and her twins.  I apologize for the blurriness if you try to blow it up.


Type at you later.

  1. Looks like a nice place to stop for the night there along Kluane Lake. Even if the bear picture is fuzzy, at least you got to see them and get a photo.
