We woke up in the dark on our last day in Canada. We were surprised to find an espresso bar in the fuel station in Haines Junction and that the sun didn’t show up until nine in the morning. The sun continued to follow us throughout the day with a chilly 28-34 F degrees.
Our drive took us through the Beautiful Kuane Range and River. The road was in fair condition with some parts quite smooth while other sections were in need of repair. We passed many rivers, creeks, lakes, swamps, forests, hills and mountains. The kids sang along to songs of Raffi while looking for elk and caribou. No animal sightings today.
We stopped for a delicious home cooked meal at Betty’s Buckshot in Beaver Creek before we headed across the international border.
There is a neat photo opportunity right at the Canada/USA boundary line. We passed through customs easily and arrived safely in Alaska! We began to sing along with Christmas carols to celebrate!
The terrain was quite similar to the previous region in the Yukon Territory, Canada. We noticed the distance markers are now in miles, no longer kilometers and the lines painted on the road were a bit brighter in AK.
After 290.3 miles, we are in Tok, Alaska for the night.
We continue to ask the Lord for safe travels each day as we begin our drive and thank him for the bountiful blessings of each day in our evening devotions.
Limited internet, photos coming soon…
