What a gorgeous drive - frost heaves and all.
We were the only ones to stop at this little bakery along the route. They had freshly baked cinnamon buns so large that Bob and I split one.
Traffic jam! On most of this road, we usually were all by ourselves, seldom seeing another vehicle in either direction. We were being stopped here for road construction.
I didn't take any pictures of frost heaves, since there are so many pictures available elsewhere. In a little car, like our jeep, they aren't much of a problem, as the short wheel base just runs right down into them and back up again. In a motor home with a long wheel base, it is necessary to slow way down. If you should be going too fast, and hit 2 or 3 of these in a row, which is usually the case, it is quite possible to launch your vehicle into mid air. Zero gravity is not good! It hurts when all your belongings fly up and then come crashing down!
This is actually a picture of the Canadian Border Patrol for east bound traffic.
A sight to behold! After 1200 miles on the Alaska Highway, we're back in the US. We got through the US Border Patrol with no problem, although I sacrificed my 1 orange to keep the peace!
Almost to Tok - the first community in Alaska coming from the Yukon Territory Canada. Scenery is better than expected!
