This traveling band is made up of Dick and Winkie, along with their faithful German Sheppard, Zac. We will be on the road in an Arctic Fox truck camper. Looking for natural history, cultural diversity and outdoor activities, including fishing, hiking and kayaking.
We left home on May 23rd. As we travel north to Alaska we will make brief stops in the Black Hills, Banff and Lake Louise. We will be arriving in Prince Rupert on June 6th to catch the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry for 2 weeks of Inland Passage travel. Our stops include Ketchikan, Prince of Wales Island, Juneau and Skagway. Next stops include Whitehorse and up the Alaska Highway to Fairbanks en route to camp at the Savage River Campground in Denali National Park and Preserve. Our 5 days there include celebrating the 4th of July!
We will be exploring Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula for the following 3 weeks. No reservations for this part. Just want to explore. The last week of July we will be heading North on the Glenn Highway, over the Tok Cutoff and the Taylor Highway, through Chicken and Eagle on our way to Dawson City. After this leg we will head home through Watson Lake and via the Alaska Highway to Dawson Creek. We plan to be home by the middle of August.
