A light rain dropped on us for most of today’s travel. The Alaska Highway turned into a gravel road for parts of the trip; causing our progress to slow.

Of course, after about a mile or so on the gravel, a huge truck flew by us, kicking up rocks and dinging our windshield.

Beautiful baby Christmas Trees everywhere and contrasting majestic Aspens. Really didn’t do much today – just drove and then did laundry. Fun day tomorrow.

No internet here, so we have been binge watching the Sopranos! We made a nice meal of quesadillas and salt & pepper corn on the cob – so much better than eating out. The Beast in Spot 21 – Downtown RV

Wildlife Spotted: Not much: Paul did notice a Coyote crossing the Highway; I missed it as I was doing mileage stats; Paul also saw a Doe – I was again on the computer and missed that also. ☹
