Holy Frost Heaves, we're in Tok, Alaska!!

We had a beautiful drive north out of the Matanuska Valley today. We made it safely to our planned destination of Tok, Alaska: about 100 miles from the Canadian border. Today we drove past the mighty Matanuska Glacier, the awesome Wrangell St. Elias mountains, we spotted a coyote, a couple of bull moose, had a near miss with a small herd of caribou and encountered many dreaded frost heaves. For those of you in more temperate climates, the ground heaves when it freezes and plays havoc on asphalt. But, our motorhome seemed to handle it splendidly!!!

Look out for Caribou!

Are we there yet?

Tomorrow we head into Canada with a plan to make it to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory by nightfall. But tonight, it is cold outside, 10 degrees F so we are bundling up and cranking the furnace up to comfy! Good night friends!
