Leaving Valdez, you guessed it ...its raining

Theres a waterfall on the mountain ahead of us

The mountains on the edge of town

Another Glacier up on the mountain


Stopped to put on his new wiper blades



A Glacier not to far from the road


Caught the sun rays streaking through the clouds



Traces of blue sky peeking through


Some pretty skinny pines



See the heaves in the road ? They caused the trailer to...


Water is just like a mirror

Near Tok Alaska

Driving by the first Park we stayed at in Alaska





LOl ! Didin't have time to ask the tourist to to...

Those little white (what look like flowers) are actually puff balls


Love the flowers on the roadside




Heading for more rain

Double rainbow in Whitehorse

The start of our 2nd. day on the road.

Low clouds, more rain

Like driving into the Abyss

Gotta slow down for the pedestrian

The sun is out !

This bridge seemed narrow to me


Goodbye Yukon, hello British Columbia !


On the Cassiar Highway (aka Hwy 37)


Needs a little more asphalt on both sides



Still on the Cassiar Highway


Smoke is in the air





As we drove over this wooden bridge, you could hear the boards...

Last day in BC...U.S. Border here we come. It's outside this rest...


On the detour , Hwy 24 (we were detoured around the City...


Talk about large marshmallows



Hard to see the boat in the water, smoke was so bad.

Took a shot of the sun

Leaving Omak, Washington, Pete & I are heading to Pendleton, Oregon...and saying...


We left Valdez on the 10th, our route took us up Hwy 4 to Hwy 1 (which is the Tok Cutoff Road). Leaving Tok we took Hwy 2 (which is the Alcan Hwy), that we took to the Canadian Border.....from there we drove up just North of Watson Lake ...where we picked up Hwy 37...also known as the Cassiar Hwy.

We hopped onto Hwy 16 & followed it to Prince George, BC. then we turned onto Hwy 97 toward the US Border. Oh.....we had to detour onto Hwy's 24 & 5 (because there was a fire near the town of Clinton).....anyways, we ended back on Hwy 97.

Now heres something, Roger & ReeAnn left the Monday before us (we left on Friday), we drove long hours into the night...a total of 2,158 miles in three days, stopping for two nights in rest stops to catch a couple of hours of sleep. We wanted to just get out of all the rain. After our 2nd night of rest, we got our ourselves ready to go, pulled the truck & trailer out on the road....Pete noticed a rig beside us, the passenger was waving wildly out the window & smiling was Roger & ReeAnn. Couldn't believe it....we knew we had to have passed by them at some point, they stayed in an RV Park there in Prince George (not to far from us).

We stopped in Kamloops,BC for lunch & they ended up following us to the U.S. border, we found an RV Park in Omak, Washington for our last night together...we parted ways the next morning.
