Home again, home again, jiggidy jig

Our last day of travel was cold but sunny and beautiful.  The scenery along the Alaska Highway is spectacular, and because the road is narrow and windy you have to slow down enough to actually see things.

We saw some animals today -

This herd of bison live between Liard Hot Springs and Lower Post…

The herd of caribou live between Watson Lake and Teslin. 

We saw a couple of moose as well but it was too dark for photos by then.

And finally, home sweet home…

We travelled 8,736 kilometres over the last twelve days, with four of those days spent visiting family in the east.  So the driving was basically done in eight days.  I am still feeling dizzy. Smile

  7. Yippee you're home! Missed you!! Take some time to rest and enjoy being home. That is an incredible journey and not one that I would like, to be perfectly honest. Maybe in the summer.. :-)
