8/25/2009 - Nabesna Road - Wrangell-St Elias National Park

We drove the Nabesna Road to it's 42 mile end today. Here are a couple of scenery photos along the way.

This is one of the unique buildings at the end of the road.

And this is the airport at the end of the road.

On the way back to the RV, we stopped in a couple of places so I could pick some blueberries. When I first heard about the Alaska blueberries, they sounded very much like our huckleberries in Idaho. However, they're very different as the plant is much lower to the ground with very small leaves. The berry is very much like the huckleberry and tastes the same.
Tomorrow we start our departure out of the wonderful state of Alaska. We're not in too much of a hurry to leave as it's been a great visit with so much to do and see. But, the weather is starting to get colder and we see signs of fall and winter approaching. Tok is the first major destination town in Alaska and it's about 60 miles from where we are now. We will head there in the morning to get fuel, and get some necessary groceries before heading into Canada. The dairy prices in Canada are very high, so that is one thing on our list for tomorrow for sure.
As we will be in Canada for the next 2-3 weeks, we will not be available by cell phone. For the most part, we are still able to get email either through our satellite dish or by connecting to a local wi-fi in our travels.
