We drove the Glenn Hwy east to Tok Cutoff skirting the Wrangell mountains and north back to to the Alaskan Hwy. Before leaving Alaska we wanted to go to the little community of Chicken on the Taylor Hwy because we heard from many that it was "an experience."

Yukon and I had delicious lentil and sweet potato soup ...
