Alaska Roadtrip with Moody Weather

Charles and I headed to Alaska last Sunday with our Milepost in hand.  We had mostly cloudy/rainy days, but it was beautiful and he is a great traveling companion.  2700 miles with 2 moose, 5 bears, marmots, swans, life sized rabbits, goats and one dead squirrel (from the rear view mirror).

Traveling with a quilter and moving to Alaska means there are quilts to use under your sleeping pads.

This is a better part of the road on the best weather day of our trip.

The Alaska Highway has tons of names made from stones along the side.

Charles now lives 19 minutes (11 miles) from Exit Glacier in the Kenai Fjords National Park. We hiked 8 miles on an incredibly drizzly day with little visibility.

We just about got blown off this rock with the wind.

    How long did it take you to drive – along with your little field trips?
    DD is up at Girdwood at Alyeska Resort. Thinking of paying her a visit.

    We did 500+ miles each day for five days and made it past Anchorage on the Seward Highway.
