8-8 & 9-13 Ok we’re spoiled. We have had a fabulous Alaskan summer. The weather has been superb – best summer in years for Alaskans. We enjoyed the Palmer area, Fairbanks, Denali, the Kenai. Weather for Kenai area is forecasted for probably rain for the next 10 days. So we have wimped out! It’s time to head south to the lower 48 and perhaps see some of the things we missed coming north (many things were still closed due to the long winter).
Stopped to top off the diesel tank in Tok – prices were YIKES! $4.69/gal of diesel. But only go up from here thru Yukon and Alberta. The weather is sunny and delightfully warm on this side of the mountains.
Stopped at the Tetlin Wildlife Refuge --- Denny likes the sod roof!Headed to Destruction Bay on Friday morning. What a rock and roll roller coaster ride the entire day. ~30 mph is pushing it! Lots of heaves, gravel and some pilot sections too. The RV & Car are DIRTY!Time to relax – camping tonight at Congdon Creek Campground km1666 on Kluane Lake. Great views of the lake. It’s windy and the lake is choppy! Fireweed is topped out (winter will be here in 6wks), berries are in bloom,Time to relax --- Whitehorse tomorrow!
