Eagles, Moose, Black Bears, Brown Bears, Elk, Sheep, Goats, Deer, Bison and many more types of wildlife all within a few hours! Weather has been perfect so far. 70-80 degrees during the day.
Zoe has been amazing, I can't say enough good things about this little trooper! She relaxes, naps, sings, watches movies, and naps in the car.
I know I indicated I may not publish any further blogs but I can't help taking notes of what we see and do so I might as well share it. Thanks for all the positive comments I have received, they are very encouraging.

... in the morning. And the hotel prices reflect the oil business with a Super 8 room going for $150 $CAN.
There are fires burning in northern Canada and Alaska. On the last leg things were getting pretty hazy and we were smelling smoke. We have some concerns about the feasibility of touring Alaska in these conditions. Tomorrow looks good for Watson Lake, although the headwinds will really slow us down. After that, it will be a day by day decision.
