JUNE 10,2007 - September 17, 2007

 We left Sacramento on June 10th.  We met up with some RV friends in Dawson Creek, Canada.  We traveled with them for over three months, as we explored Alaska.  We drove over 10,000 miles.  A highlight of the trip was having our granddaughter, Nalonni, with us for most of the time. She was such a joy to be with.  Be sure to look at all the wonderful pictures (Alaskan Pictures), and read about our experiences (Alaskan Travel Stories).

We fell in love with Dawson City.  It maintains it's turn of the century gold rush feel, with wooden sidewalks and dirt streets.  On the left is a hill top view of the city, situated on the Yukon River.  Here are a lot of pictures around town...


These two pictures were taken on the hill above Dawson at 12 pm -  mid-night.  Sunset?

Tradition at the Downtown Hotel is to join the Sourtoe Cocktail Club.  Rights are administered by Captain Dick.


From Dawson City we took the Top of the World Highway to Chicken Alaska.  It started with a Ferry ride across the Yukon river (in the rain) and got more exciting after that.  Here are pictures along the Highway.

THE DALTON HIGHWAY - "HAUL HIGHWAY" - Along the Alaskan Pipeline


Nalonni drove from Fairbanks to the Artic Circle.  She is now a "Haul Driver" and ate a Haul breakfast along the road.  Double everything on two plates...
