Sunday, May 9, 2010
On Thursday May 6th we arrived at the North Pole, Alaska and have settled down for a couple of days to grocery shop and do laundry. Sunday the 9th we will go to Denali National Park and settle down for the summer. It has been a good trip except for the snow and a broken windshield on the coach.
On May 4th we arrived in Lake Watson safely, we took a walk over to the sign forest and put one of our old license plates on one of the poles. So after 5 years we have left our mark on the sign forest in Canada. It was a good day travelling we got to see Caribou, Big Horn Sheep, a Black Bear, a Grizzle Bear, some Bison, a couple of mother moose with yearlings, and a wolf, and we have not even got to Alaska yet.
Yea Yea that right we found snow in Canada. On Monday the 3rd of May we got caught in a snow storm. We were half way between Fort Nelson and Toad River (where we planned on spending the night), and we had to stop at a rest stop with alot of truck drivers. We spend 18 hours there, (from 2 p.m. till 9 a.m.) then in the morning the snow plow trucks showed up and plowed the road, they were still very icy but we went on with care and made it to Watson Lake. As you can see from the pictures it was a beautiful sun rise. It is always adventure coming to Alaska.
