Where I stayed
It turned warm today, for the first time since I was in South Dakota over a week ago. Warm enough for just a T-shirt (rather than multiple layers). But not warm enough to have to run the A/C in the van.
There is a nice rest area at the actual Yukon/Alaska border. I stopped there just as a bus of German and Austrian tourists were having their pictures taken in front of the Alaska sign
Gas prices are "down" to about $3.35 per gallon now that I'm in Alaska. Still better than prices in Canada!!! The road surfaces in this part of Alaska are the worst of any part of the trip so far. Pavement breaks and frost heaves are caused by the severe winters. Slow down!
The sky became hazy as the day progressed. Not so good for scenery pictures.
The campground where I am tonight is along a creek. Tolsona Wilderness Campground is about 20 minutes west of Glennallen, in the middle of nowhere. It's very pretty here, and the mosquitoes are most welcoming. I'll try to upload a picture from across the creek. Right this minute I'm doing laundry and charging my camera batteries. And writing this entry, of course,
