- We left Dawson Creek at mile "0" on a clear day. The weather was great, Since it was eairly when we reached Fort Nelson, BC we continued on to Toad River. The campground had electric only, but I was expecting that so we had water in our fresh water tank.
- When we left in the morning them temp was around 38 and it was raining. As we started to get near Muncho Lake the temp. started to drop and the rain turned to snow. By the time we reached the sumit there was about 2" of snow on the road. At this point we started down toward Watson Lake. The snow turned back to rain..
- We left Watson Lake in the rain and decided to continue to Telsin Lake. After about 50 miles the rain stopped and the weather cleared. When we got to Telson Lake the campground had just put on the water so we had both electric & water.
- The next morning the temp was around 36 and there was rain that looked like it could turn to snow at any time. We also spoke to someone who said Muncho Lake had a total of 20" of snow the day before. We continued past Bear Creek, YT and stopped at a campground at 23 miles inside AK. There was no problem this time with crossing the boarder.
- We have now covered 1225 miles from Dawson Creek and will be in Palmer, AK, just outside of Anchorage today.
- The drive to Palmer was wonderful. We had clear and sunny weather and the snow on the Mtns was fantastic to look at. We passed Matanuska Glacier while driving. We will be here a few days and visit with some friends and then head to Seward on the Kenai. We hope to go on a few tours while there and see more glaciers and maybe some whales as well as other wild life.
