July 15th & 16th, 2015 – Destruction Bay, Yukon Territory to Kenny Lake – Alaska

Have we mentioned how beautiful the drive to Alaska is?  More pictures to prove it.  The last 100 miles in Canada is a bit of a dicey drive – the permafrost causes the road to buckle – so lots of gravel and lots of bumps.  Progress is slow in this area so we spent the night in Tok, Alaska.  The RV park had a young man giving a concert and Leslie and Sharon went to see him.  He was very talented and it was a great way to end the day.

The next day we drove to Kenny Lake which is near the Copper River (where the famous Copper River Reds come from).  We stopped at the Wrangell St. Elias visitor center and got to see a fish wheel up close (7th picture) which is used along the Copper River to catch salmon.  The last picture shows a cache which people used a long time ago to store food.

    Leslie,

    Some of our RV friends have made the trip to Alaska, but I don’t remember any of them talking about the beautiful scenery along the way. I am in awe of how gorgeous the mountains, lakes and countryside is. To see bald eagles and bears, etc. makes me want to do this trip. All of your pictures could be from a chamber of commerce website. Sorry about the flat tire, but sometimes those detours are an opportunity to see an unplanned part of the country. Glad that you are having such a great time.

    We miss you,

    Barb

    OH MY GOODNESS – what gorgeous scenes. Don’t know if my eyes would be able to take it in person. So happy for you being able to do this wonderful trip.
