8/26/2009 - After a Great Summer, We Leave Alaska

All good things seem to come to an end, and today we ended our adventures in the beautiful state of Alaska. We're already talking about coming back in a couple of years if at all possible. We stopped in Tok for some additional groceries and fuel, then continued on our way. The Alaskan Highway follows the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge for some distance, and we stopped at their visitor center for a short while to learn what we could there.
The cone-shaped on the side of the highway in this photo are an experiment to keep ground from thawing and prevent frost heaves. Hopefully, it will work as this section of road was bad!

We are now out of Alaska and entering Yukon Territory.

We arrived at Snag Junction, a Yukon Territory campground, and set up for the night.
