Total Trip Mileage: 6,651
These two days have been palette cleanser/travel days for us. Not too much in the way of scenery. At least not compared to what we have been through.
Met these two guys when we pulled into Tok.
One of their bicycles was broken down. Apparently one of the pedals had stripped out the treads on arm side, and the pedal fell off. I was able to lend some tools, and we were quickly able to cross-thread in the new pedal (I believe there may have been an issue of metric threads vs. non-metric). Anyhow it got them off down the road. Oh yeah, forgot to mention they are riding from Deadhorse, AK (basically Prudhoe Bay) to the Southern tip of Argentina. It will take them 15 months.
At the visitor center in Tok:
A short day, and we arrive at camp with plenty of time to tinker with the bike,
and shower like bears.
The next day we head back into Canada. Our destination for tonight will be Haines Junction, YT.
Sweet sunshine, a welcomed site.
I guess this is a frequent enough occurrence that it necessitated a sign...
Some of the most tore up stretches of road we have been on. Frost heaves and construction.
Construction zone gravel stretch:
Scenic lunch break:
Making the best out of a boring day.
At this point that was the closest thing we have seen to law enforcement in Canada. I believe the fear of hitting a moose or something keeps most people honest.
The highlight of the day, Destruction Bay:
Heading back into Alaska tomorrow. We will spend 2 days in Haines and pick-up our ferry from there that will bring us back to the lower 48 - Bellingham, WA.
