The Alaska Bound group makes it to the border! A sigh of relief as we are back in the USA. We can now buy gas again in gallons instead of liters.

An "International Kiss"! Marie is in Alaska, USA and I am still in Canada! The Alaska-Canadian border is 1538 miles long and is totally unfortified.

After entering Alaska we spend a couple of nights in Tok and then head to Valdez via the Richardson Hwy.

This is a view of the Richardson Hwy with the Wrangell Mountains. This is another area with gorgeous views around every corner. At times in the highest mountains it felt very lonely and isolated.

As we got close to Valdez the scenery was incredible. One minute we're at the top of snowy mountains with glaciers and then we're at gorgeous waterfalls and green mountainsides.

A lot of the businesses in Valdez weren't open yet but we managed to find a glacier tour and enough stores to keep us occupied for a few days. Now it's on to Denali.

 

Thanks for being here!
