Well, it's been fun, rough, scary, gorgeous, tiring and exciting! Since Friday, we wound our way through Yukon territory and across the Northern Rockies. I spent most of Friday crying my eyes out. Pathetic, I know, but what a well of emotions came out about our big adventure as I faced anxiety from the trials and tribulations of driving the Alaska Highway in the cold, snow and ice. By Saturday, the sun was out and the roads were much better. By Sunday, as we crossed the northern Rockies, the weather was incredible and my excitement about what we are doing is back.
Entering Canada at Beaver Creek in the Yukon.
Frost Heaves - you can see them - they are much worse than they look, the motor home handled them well, thankfully.
Wood Bison near Liard Hot Springs. These things were everywhere!
Oh-oh!! They spotted the Wood Bison.
The Sign Post Forest, Watson Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada
The best sign ever! The black symbol means frost heaves. These Polish tourists had a great outlook!!

Licking the salt from the road.
So many new things to sniff!!! The dogs are great travelers.
Here I am soaking away the day's worries at Liard Hot Springs. This pool was 9 ft deep and way out in the snowy woods. The water was about 100 degrees F and I loved every minute of it.
A freezing river. In another week or two, this will be frozen solid
