So, now back to blogging.
Stan and I drove to Alaska again this summer. This time we took a side trip to Dawson City in the Yukon Territory. We then ferried across the Yukon River and drove the Top of the World Highway to Fairbanks. How to describe the drive? Besides looooooong? Just one word........Breathtaking.
We drove the Cassiar Highway and connected with the AlCan just south of Whitehorse. From Whitehorse we headed North to Dawson City. We have driven the Cassiar two times now. Last summer and this. It does not have as much traffic as the AlCan. I guess it has not been "discovered" yet. The wild life along this highway is more abundant than along the AlCan also. Both times we have traveled it we have seen up to 14 bear as well as moose and other small animals. All of the years we drove the AlCan, we never saw a bear.
