PCS 2013: Day 1 & 2–Fort Wainwright to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory in Canada

Well, today was day 2 of our trip.  I wanted to check in with you and give you a look at our trip so far.

There was still ice and snow everywhere, but the weather was good and warm – practically t-shirt weather!

After our first night in Tok, Alaska – we got up and headed towards the Canadian border.  I know over the years, I have shared MANY Alaskan adventures with you. It has been very clear that I love Alaska and will miss it terribly. So we stopped and took a final family photo in Alaska.

Have I mentioned that I am going to miss Alaska?

We crossed over the border with no trouble at all, and headed out on the lovely Canadian highway. I say that with utter sarcasm, because the road between the Canadian border and Whitehorse was a NIGHTMARE 3 years ago. They have much improved the roads, but they are still a force to be reckoned with.

But can you beat this scenery?

We’ve also seen numerous eagles, several moose and even a whole herd of caribou crossing a still frozen lake!

    This reminds me of how I felt in December when we had to leave Germany. I love the silly picture of you clinging to Alaska! LOL
