Road to Dease Lake BC. Aug 16 & 17, 2012

After 3 great days in Skagway it was time to continue on to our next stop. The next 6 pix are some of the view coming out of Skagway. The train is the one we took a ride on. It comes to the top of White Pass & then returns to Skagway. There’s an area that has a lot if rocks & people have stopped to stack them.

Along the Alaska Hwy between Teslin & Watson Lake is the Continental Divide and a few miles past that is Rancheria Falls Rec. area. This is a nice pull off with a large parking area & a nice 10 min boardwalk trail to the picturesque falls. We spent the nite there & there were some other people that spent the nite there too.

The next morning we were off again. Had a short delay @ another road repair. I think this may have been one of the washouts that occurred in June when there was some rain in this area.  Along the way we stopped @ Jade City. It’s where they mine & ship Jade around the world.

Dear Steve & Sandy, After getting your amazing email photos we rushed over to your blog to see more and could not stop until we had visited every single entry from day 1 to the end of your amazing trip to Alaska. We are so astonished by your beautiful photos and great story telling. We feel like we have been to Alaska. Thank you so much for all your work in writing this blog, and for being our friends.
