Greetings from across the Bridge!
In Sept 1997,Dad and I took our 2nd trip together to Alaska. We travelled there in dad`s 1994 Geo Metro which was still a fairly new car back then. We drove thru the US as far as North Dakota before entering Canada at the Saskatchewan border. Then it was west across the Canadian plains until we reached the town of Dawson Creek in British Columbia. This is where the Alaska Highway begins. We drove north on the Alaska Highway for about 500 miles before arriving in Canada`s Yukon territory which is adjacent to Alaska. Here we did a bit of hiking in the Carcross Desert. This is a small area of sand dunes surrounded by majestic peaks. It is actually the floor of an ancient lake.We then travelled on to Skagway,Alaska to hike the Chilkoot Trail,a famous trail from the 1897 Klondike Gold Rush. I`ve posted a few pix from this trip. More details later. Dad and I shared 5 Alaska trips together before I crossed the Bridge in 2000.
