After a couple of days spent in Fairbanks, we hit the road kind of late in the day yet again, but this time we know where we’d like to spend the night.
Once we pass Tok, Ak., we are on new (to us) grounds as we had by-passed this section of the Alaska highway by going to Dawson city.
Nice. And populated too !…
So we haven’t had snow on the ground so far but last night, it was really close! Time to head south indeed.
Atop Chilkat pass (3,510 ft) on Haines highway, we are back into tundra like environment.
Finally breaking through the clouds.
Just south of the pass.
We are back in the clouds again!
Down in Haines, we are in a temperate rainforest! Only about 100 kms from the tundra at Chilkat pass!!
At Chilkoot lake state park, we’re in luck…
..And get to see wild grizzlies catching and eating salmon just a few feet from us.
Well, time to go, I guess…
To be continued…
For us, Marc and France, in 2014, it's bye bye boss and home.
After our 10 month, 15,000 kms ATV Adventure, (www.quadtrek.net) we, this time, set out with Minnie, our dog, to explore all 3 Americas driving
our 30 + years old Landcruiser.
Our car, provided it survives, will allow us to reach remote areas far off the tourist traps.
Follow us on this new and exciting Adventure. Who knows what we'll discover?
