Chitina to Tok

Friday, July 24, 2009
Tok, Alaska, United States
Continued north on the Richardson highway through the Copper Center Loop, which has a nice view of the river.

The Tok Cutoff road was really, really bad—roller coaster, gravel, and construction.

There were great views of snow-capped Wrangell Mountains and lots of fireweed down the roadside hills.

The Sourdough Campground has nice camp spots; lots of trees. Had their dinner—reindeer chili and corn chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. The bread was wonderful but there wasn't enough of the chili or corn chowder.

The nightly activity is a pancake toss. You get two tries to get a pancake in the bucket; the prize is an all-you-can-eat sourdough pancake breakfast. Neither of us got our pancakes in the bucket, but it was lots of fun and laughs.
