The Cassiar Highway + A Side Trip

Upon leaving Skagway, we headed back north on the gorgeous South Klondike Highway, and east onto the Alaska Highway.  From there we had a choice.  Continue on the Alaska Highway all the way to Dawson Creek, or head down the Cassiar Highway? The decision was almost made for us as the Cassiar closed the night …

On to Skagway!

Well, we are back in Alaska!  We weren’t ready to say goodbye for good just yet, so we have made our way to Skagway for a few days.  Between Dawson City and Skagway we made a couple of stops, and check out the view from our campsite at Fox Lake!  We think it was the …

Leaving Alaska

We have been dreading this day.  Since we entered Alaska three months ago, we have absolutely fallen head over heels in love with the state.  Heather said last night that she was concerned before our visit that we had built it up in our minds so much that we might be disappointed with the reality, …

Sunset Again!

This is a super quick post from Clearwater State Recreation Area where we have spent the last two days relaxing and soaking in the beautiful weather we have had while here. The temperatures have been situated perfectly in the upper 60s and low 70s and we have had partly sunny skies! The sunshine has been …

Tangle Lakes

We have had a very relaxing week and a half since our journey into Wrangell-St. Elias National Park via the McCarthy Road.  We have spent the time traveling short distances and staying in a combination of roadside pull outs and small BLM campgrounds.  We have spent a few days each in Sourdough Creek Campground, Paxson …

Valdez, AK

Valdez is spectacular!  No kidding, it is likely the most gorgeous setting for a town we have ever seen.  The mountains are huge and gorgeous with glaciers between, the water is blue, berries are ripe, and flowers are blooming everywhere!  It is almost magical. Before we get to all that, though, let’s talk about getting …

Palmer, Revisited

As mentioned in our last post, we are back in Palmer for a few days.  There are a number of chores that we need to accomplish while here, but first we had some activities that we ran out of time for last time we were in the area, so we got to the fun stuff …

Portage Valley and Whittier

After leaving Seward on Tuesday, we headed back toward Anchorage to get Richard back to the airport.  It was unreal that his time with us was already over!  It didn’t seem like a week had already passed and it definitely wasn’t long enough, but back to the airport he had to go anyway.  To avoid …
