The end of the Alaskan Highway . . .

Just before we left on vacation, we happened upon a jeep and bought it.  Jay had mentioned that he would like one to tow behind the truck and low and behold, a good deal just happened to land in our laps.  Needless to say, the entire trip every time I saw a jeep, I would ask if that is like ours.  I truly didn't know because we had it for a few days before we left.  This isn't the one we bought, but this is how we thought we had to pack to drive across Canada and Alaska, not so much.  There are gas stations and civilization outposts everywhere.  

If this was me, I would have had some veggies growing up here.

Our models, Judy and Buddy.  We had to stop here for reindeer sausage and other types of meat
you can't find in the lower 48.

This is the outside of the meat store.  It is a big processing plant.

The Alaska state bird.  Guess who the jokesters are on this trip?

Road signs you don't see too many other places.

We took this trip backwards.  This is the end of the Alaskan Highway.

One thing I love about traveling north for the summer are all of the flowers. There are big balls of flowers hanging off of patios and store fronts everywhere.  We have had such a drought in California for such a long time, it's nice to see green and flowers.

I miss my garden at our old house.

The flowers and garden are in front of an old farmstead in Delta Junction.  Loved reading about and seeing all of the old stuff.

After we left here, we continued on to North Pole to visit my cousin.  More on that later.
