Dawson Creek to Coal River

Coal River to Tok

Red Fox


I'm in Fairbanks. I finally have a good internet connection so I've been able to upload some higher quality versions of my photos.

Tok, Alaska

I'm in Tok, AK tonight. There are a few fires in northern BC and the Yukon and all the smoke from the fires is coming this way, so the entire day today was spent driving through one giant cloud of smoke.

Yesterday I spotted a fox and stopped to check it out. There were actually lots (at least 4) foxes living there along side the road. I'll post some pictures. One of them was really brave and relaxed but another was a real chicken and would come out and 'bark' at me then run back in, but eventually he came out and posed for the camera, too.

North to Alaska

I'm in a little town called Coal River with a population of 4. Not 400, not 40, 4! I've seen lots of wildlife and the weather has been mostly good but I did drive through a couple bad storms but they were pretty quick storms.

I cross the border into Canada in NE Washington last Friday. My car was searched bye the stupid border patrol because they thought I had "too many back-packs." I guess they've never been on the road for 3 weeks before.

Friday and Saturday were both LONG days. Friday, I went all the way to almost Lake Louis. Yesterday, I took my time going through Lake Louis and Jasper. Last night I went all the way past Fort St. Johns. Today, I made a short day and am stopping a little short of Watson Lake. I have pictures posted on Facebook. I don't know if I'll get them on here yet or not. The internet is really slow here.
