These were both the bigger coaches. Ole Nelly is preforming quite well considering...
On our ride we get through 47 miles before we see rain AGAIN but it doesn't last long. We see lots of lakes and several fire damaged areas that are marked with the date of the fire (in order we see - 1998, 1958, 1995, 1969, and 1953). There isn't really anything here but trees and as you know they forest recovers very quickly so what we see is minimal.
We stop at a place called the Tintina Trench where the glacier came through way back when and what was left was "conglomerate" rock - it's cool to see several rocks all mixed up in to one big boulder.
At mile 86 we hit the gravel road which goes for quite a way and then eventually comes back to pavement and the dips and frost heaves.
Day 91 - Dawson City - We go on a guided walking tour of the city which was great. Got to go inside some of the old buildings. The roads are all dirt which just adds to the ambiance of the area. Dawson runs along the Yukon which is a swift current of about 18 knots. On the 31st of July we take a ferry (with motor home and car) across this river to the other side. It's only about a 5 minute ride and we took it yesterday on foot to see what it was like, and WOW do those guys have to work hard to get across the river and line up with the other side
We went to the Diamond Tooth Gerties show and Nick got picked to go up on stage with the gals. They also had a little casino there and in half hour I doubled my BIG bet of $10.00 and then we watched the second show. Great fun. We walked out just about 11:30 and the sun was just about to go down!!!
Day 92 - We have a free day so we went to Jack London's home and Robert Service's (poet) home and had breakfast, did our internet and we will head back to get ready for a shorter drive tomorrow on the "Top of the World Highway" and into the USA again and our first stop in Alaska - the town of Chicken!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAX KOULICHKOV - 3 YEARS OLD - WE LOVE AND MISS YOU!!
