Alaska 2007 travel blog


It was a little sad leaving Whitehorse as we head for home. We have had such a great trip, it will be hard to see it come to an end.

We had heard that the snow had been melting a little later this year and they were concerned about Marsh Lake flooding the Alaskan Highway. As we drove by the Marsh Lake Recreation Site, they were putting up a "Closed" sign so it must be a serious problem.

There was only one very narrow lane crossing the Teslin Bridge. We watched the big motorhome in front of us and it looked like they only had a foot to spare on each side. The Teslin Bridge is the third longest span on the highway (1770 ft.) We stopped and had lunch at the Teslin Bridge roadside rest.

It was a one eagle and one falcon day—no other wild critters.

As we turned on the Cassier Highway we soon hit construction. So far it has been paved, with little shoulder and no center lines. It has been very windy and hilly.

We stopped at the Blue Lakes Rest Area (about 16 miles from the intersection of the Alaskan Hwy.) for the night. It is a beautiful site and four other campers have stopped here also.
