Below is pump station 12. The pipeline winds through 3 major mountain range.
We had an easy crossing at the Canadian border. They didn't even ask about fruit and vegetables, I had made sure we had eaten all the fruit and we even had a salad for lunch before crossing to use up some tomatoes and green pepper that I thought they would have taken. You never know what they will ask about.
As we continued on the Tok Cutoff, we passed a military convoy. The convoy of vintage WW11 vehicles are making a month long drive in Alaska to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the construction of the Alaska Highway that the military played a significant part in. We were fortunate to see some of the 200 vehicles making the trip,
Friday we drove onto Whitehorse. We didn't really care for the park we stayed at last time and so this time stayed at Hi-Country RV Park just off the Alaska Highway. It is much nicer with trees separating the sites and we have a spot that parks against a forest glade. We only planned on staying one night so we could stock up on groceries. However, the jello plans come into play again. We had recently had our jeep in for the 60,000 mile service and had work done. Now there is a brake problem. Some of the time you have to push the brake down almost all the way and the brake warning light goes on. This just started happening when we went to the store. Of course it is late Friday afternoon and too late to get it into the Jeep dealer that they do have in town. They are suppose to be open on Saturday, but oh no. Joe goes over there early Saturday morning to not only find that they are closed but that they will not be open to Tuesday as it is a holiday weekend that is just in the Yukon. This is the third time in a year that we have had either MH or car problems that involved a holiday weekend. So we are here to at least Tuesday or later if a part needs to be ordered. Well at least the campground is nice as is the weather. Though, to top it off first I got a cold and then Joe did as well. So we aren't doing much while we are here. At least there is cable and so we have tv as well as internet and books to keep us entertained. Life on the road. We can't complain. We had a wonderful time in Alaska and would definitely like to go back again. We have places we would like to spend more time at and other places and things to do that we missed this time. It is an amazing place, full of beauty and grandeur.
