We made it back to ‘Merica’! Our ‘rule of thumb’ is to travel only 6 hours per day, however, today was 14 hours! We left Teslin with the idea of stopping somewhere near the border at Beaver Creek, but our plan wasn’t God’s plan.
Sunrise 5:53 a.m., Sunset 9:44 p.m. Crossing the border from British Columbia into the Yukon takes forever as it winds back and forth until crossing the Morley River. Our first stop in the Yukon was for fuel at Contact Creek. This is a small hut-like building that has been around for many years. The owners…
We really needed a Shabbat and Liard won the toss. We could relax in the hot springs and being early in the season, there would be fewer people in the campground. We met some wonderful people in Dawson Creek (from Anchorage) and they arrived Friday evening at Liard along with two other couples from Ninilchik in the Kenai Peninsula. Everyone also had ties to Colorado so soaking in the springs made for some fun conversation. At the end the called us ‘Alaskans,’ lol. One couple has a boat and fishes in Homer for halibut and expect to visit us at Cooper Creek.
Because this is our second year to do the Alaska Highway, we are taking more time to stop and see those things we passed by last year. It’s not that we didn’t want to stop, we just wanted to make the best time to Alaska. This year, we have some time to spare and are taking our time.
