Aug 26, 2013 - Our return to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

Mon Aug 26 A Little Slice of Heaven A new low temp this morning – 30.2ﹾ We’ll definitely see lower than that before arriving in Yuma. I got up twice last night to see if the “lights” (Aurora) were out – nope. We have been hearing reports of them starting to come into view. We both slept in this morning. Another blue sky day. Ginger’s back has been acting up, that long trip down the Haul Road in the back of a van was the culprit. If she was feeling fine we might just run down to Valdez and do a ½ day charter for silvers. Instead we will...

Aug 7, 2012 - Canadian Border To Near Destruction Bay

8-7 Canadian Border To Near Destruction Bay Sunny And 60’s Stayed At Cottonwood RV Park This stretch of the Alaska Highway follows the northern edge of the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge.

It has been a beautiful day to travel with the clouds much higher in the sky, with peak after peak after mountain peak visible to us ahead and beside the...

Aug 5, 2012 - Driving the Nabesna Road in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

8-5 Driving the Nabesna Road in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park 46 Degrees and Drizzly Staying at Grizzly Lake Campground The northern road into the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is a 42 mile dirt and gravel road into the wilderness. The park is unique in that there are scattered private properties throughout, so we did see a few cabins and places where people are living, as well as a sportsmen’s lodge. We stopped at the Slana Ranger Station before going into the park to pick up the free audio tour they offer on loan, and it was really...
