We started our trip in Glacier National Park, Montana.
The Rockies are beautiful in Glaicer Ntl. Park
This is Red Rock Falls in Glaicer National Park
The surounding rock is brick red in color but it does not show in the photos.
We entered Canada between St. Mary Montana and Cardston Alberta Canada.
This is The beginning to the Alaska Highway Mile zero in downtown Dawson Creek.
Not just the truck but we also made it into the photos.
This is our view of the Peace River Valley.

This is Sikanni Chief Falls that john is looking at. The water is all muddy with Glaicial Silt in the melt water runoff.
Along the Alaskan Highway we saw some Stone sheep close to Stone Mountian, Canada.
Here is a closer look at a Stone Sheep.
This is a small lake near Toad River Crossing, there is a Moose swmming in the lake.
This is Muncho Lake with beiutiful mountians in the distance.
They have Bison in Canada also, Yellowstone is not the only place they call home.
Thos is the Sign Post Forrest in Fort Nelson, B.C. Canada. People on their way to Alaska on the Highway put their hometown name on a sign here.
There are thousands of signs on the trail in the Sign Post Forrest.
Some folks put their car plates on the posts.
It all started way back in 1942 when a soilder from Danville Illinois put up an arrow sign with his home towns name on it and the milage from that point to his home.
We saw lots of raod construction when we pased Fort Nelson and into the Yukon Territories.
In Whitehorse, Y.T. this is our tour boat for the Yukon River tour we took.
Here is a self portrait of John and I having fun on a rainy day in the town of Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada. We took a one hour cruise in the Yukon River.
At one time this part of the Yukon River was known for its dangerous rapids, now because of the dam at Whitehorse they are no longer there.
These are a nest full of Ravens in the clifts along the river.
This is a foot bridge over the Youkon River
An old trappers cabin on the river.
An old Beaver Den is along the bank of the Yukon River.
Here is the foot bridge that we went under on our river cruise. Who is that hansome guy?
Who is that in the middle of the bridge? Is it super traveler? No it's Jeanie in the rain.
Whitehorse rapids on the Yukon Rive.
More mountians I believe these are the Kluane Mountians.
Ths cloudy day covered the tops of the Mountians.
This is the beautiful Lake Kluane, Destruction bay is on this lake. It is called this because a pontoon bridge was destroyed in a storm when they were building the Alaska Highway in 1942.
All this dust is from the construction on the road.
We made it across the Alaska border on June 8th at 1:25 pm alaska time. They are an hour earlier than pacific time.
This is Deadman Lake and the muskeg growth along the shore.Muskeg is a bog of sorts, the plants grow very dense and make a spongy soil that is wet all summer.
We got to do some walking along a bordwalk to the shoreline of Deadman Lake. It is a boardwalk because the permafrost is very delicate.
Thia is n okd trappers' cabin in the woods behind the Tetlin Visitor Center. There were Americorps volunteers there building a trail to the cabin.
The cabin was very old and was abandoned with things inside.
The cabin from a different angle.
Here are some of the things left behind, a cantene, hide streachers, and traps.
