We stayed in Washington for two weeks. We only did two things on our Washington list, but that’s ok…these two weeks were more about catching our breath after the long Alaskan Summer and the very long drive days through Canada to get back to the lower 48. We needed decompression time and we needed to … Continue reading »

Canada…The Return Trip

We drove 2,049 miles in five days. We left Fairbanks on Monday morning and crossed the US border into Washington on Friday. We decided to go a different route back than what we took to get to Alaska. On the way to Alaska we took the ALCAN so on the way back we took the … Continue reading »

Fairbanks, AK Part Two

Fairbanks is different from all the other Alaskan towns we’ve been to. It’s not so touristy. There aren’t gift shops on every corner and there’s really not much to do.

On the way to the Denali area from … Continue reading »

Talkeetna, AK

Talkeetna is a tiny touristy town. We spent the first week in August there and enjoyed a relaxing week off from zipping all over the place to get everything done in the small amount of time we have.

Seward, AK

We spent two weeks in the Seward area. Using it as our basecamp for all the other places we wanted to visit on the Kenai Peninsula. We really enjoyed Seward! It was pretty small and definitely had plenty of touristy stuff, but it had a nice balance of non-touristy stuff too. There was a cute little boardwalk … Continue reading »
