Where I stayed
However, we had many highlights on our trip: seeing our friends in Illinois, not once but twice; the lingering winter on the Icefields parkway; the eagles in Prince Rupert; restful, quiet Wrangell, Alaska; the stunning scenery on the drive from Haines to the Alaska Highway; Denali National Park, both Mt. McKinley and the animals that live there; seeing the Talkeetna "Moose Dropping Festival"; the eagle in Homer that entertained us at Beluga Lake; beautiful Prince William Sound; breaching humpback whales; the bears trying to catch fish at Hyder and last but not least the drive along the Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier National Park.
There is still much of the Last Frontier that we have not seen, but that will have to wait for another time.
We are thankful that all of our travels on the highway were uneventful and we covered more than 14,000 miles without a mishap. Perhaps our beloved Pooky was watching over us.
