Alright folks, we're back. The past couple weekends have taken us exploring all over this beautiful land. But it's Sunday night and in an effort to stave off bedtime and the inevitability of Monday morning, I bring you an entry from our journey. Today we would finish the Canadian leg of the trip and enter into Alaska. Very exciting for us, though we loved Canada so it was just a tiny bit sad.
Tempting as it was to continue straight, we turned right.
The ride, going strong
Coming up on the largest lake in the Yukon, Kluane Lake (kloo-AHN-ee).
There she is, full of trout, pike, and grayling says the Milepost
These were just a few of the questions and thoughts Randi and I shared as we happened upon this mobile sentinel of Canadian road works authority. Turns out it was legit and after a 20 minute wait the pilot car arrived. The pavement ended soon after and we putted along at about 25 MPH for a good 10 miles or so.
This seemed pretty hardcore so I put it in 4-wheel drive just to be extra sure.
The border! We were excited to be here, so we stopped and took a couple hundred pictures.
We're still happily married, don't worry : )
Yukon Robby, Yukon Charlie, I dub thee, Alaska Robby and Alaska Charlie
I fear for the ants of Alaska
Remember those chips from Destruction Bay? Charlie does! Old Dutch ketchup flavor, this guy will eat anything.
We finally arrived in Tok and found our accommodations. The Burnt Paw cabins were cute, quaint, and affordable. They were comfy, fully modern (minus A/C) with fridges and cable and all that.
Gotta rehydrate after all that fluid loss.
We have one more day of travel. I hope to bring it to you very soon. After you have finished reading about our travels, feel free to leave a comment and ask questions or for more pictures. I'd love to do a Q&A type entry about it all. Thanks for reading.
