Portland & Seattle

Wow, it's hard to believe that Larry posted only two weeks ago, it seems like that was such a long time ago since we were in Klamath Falls. We enjoyed our little day trip to Crater Lake NP. We were very lucky and took the south entrance, come to find out that was the only entrance that was open. Since it was early in the season, things weren't quite open yet. In fact it was free to enter the park ...

Our Alaska Trip Begins

Connie had a great time with daughter Leslie and grand-daughters Kaylee and Khloe at their "tea-party". We attended another soccer game with Khloe then spent our last day in the Seattle area making some final purchases for our Alaska trip. We left the Seattle area on May 12th and headed North to Arlington, WA. Using the Casino Camper website, we stayed a couple nights at the Angel of the Wind casi...

Alaska Trip - Week 2

After leaving Quesnel, we moved another 170 miles to the small town of Mackenzie (May 20th - 21st). We've been moving slowly, ensuring we enjoy the trip. Why drive all day, just to get exhausted?

But there were two reaso...

Alaska Trip - Weeks 3 to 4

After leaving Whitehorse, we had another day of beautiful scenery. On June 1st, we arrived at a one horse town in the Yukon Territory called Pelly River Crossing. This was just a one-night stop at an abandoned government campground (62.8264, -136.5845). At least it was abandoned while we were there. By morning, there were 5 campers using the campground for the night. However, it looks like they ma...

Alaska Adventure - Weeks 7 and 8

Halibut Fishing

We stayed on the "Spit" at Homer from June 24th - July 8th. As expected, the July 4th holiday weekend was a mad-house in the campground. We enjoyed our stay in Homer, but after a couple weeks, we were ready to move on. During our stay in Homer, we hiked in an Alpine Meadow at the Eveline Recreation Area (where I left off in our previous Blog entry). While visiting the Bear Creek Winery, Larry made...
