On our way to the Canadian Border. The traffic through Seattle was light and calm. Unfortunately, there were homeless encampments all along the freeway. Further, the roads are bumpy as heck.

GPS took us a round about way to the Canadian Border. We were able to get gas on the USA side at a Super Duper for $3.39 per gallon. We hit the Border at 11:00 a.m. There were only ten vehicles a head of us!

The border crossing was simple – showed our passports and answered some questions about plants and fruit. We arrived at the Canyon Alpine RV Park around 1:00 p.m.

The campground is nice but not as advertised. Their free internet does not work. I bought their 48-hour package and that did not work either. Called for help at 2:20 p.m. They said they would respond in five minutes because they were not in the office. They never did call back – however, when I checked again at 2:47 p.m., we were connected.
