Roadtripping the Alaska-Canada Highway
If You're in the Mood for a Few Thousand Miles
Day 1: Anchorage-Tok-Border Crossing-Destruction Bay, Yukon
Our first photo op was the glacier about 2 hours north of Anchorage. It was the first week of September, and fall colors were abundant.
Posing for a photo on the international boundary that marks where Alaska and Canada meet.
After posing with the Welcome to Alaska sign, I walked a few steps over to the Yukon sign!

We were only able to access the internet for about 20 minutes at the Talbot Arm Motel, because that's all the bandwidth the motel could spare. It was $10.
Crossing the Border
After driving through Tok and Northway, we cross the border into Canada near Beaver Creek into the Yukon Territory.
The boundary looked the same in 2017 as it did in the early 70s when my dad crossed.
Home for the night- Talbot Arm Motel. It was the only choice for hours, and was nicer than it looks.
Mile 1083, The Alaska Highway
We had some drizzle the first day, but temperatures were comfy. Overnight lows in the low 30s, with highs in the 40s.
