The first time we drove this, it was raining and you couldn't see much. Today was bright sunshine, and it was a beautiful drive.
Stopped at Tetlin Visitor Center; they told us where we might see trumpter swans. Saw them soon after passing the US border. Two swans were in a pond right next to the highway. It’s sure great to have a telephoto lens!
The road in Canada is just as bad as the first time—very wavy and frost heaves; had to drive slow—35 for quite a bit of this part.
Stopped frequently to take pictures—St. Elias icefields, lakes, rivers, mountains, tundra.
Camped on a pullout next to Kulane Lake with two other RV’ers we met on the road. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains was incredible—what a place to spend the night!
