Going South Tuesday June 13

We left the 3 Bears campground about 7:30 and went to Fast Eddy’s for a quick breakfast.  Then we went over to the Shell station for coffee to go.  Their coffee is pretty good and it’s $1.39 for a big cup.  Now we are heading south from Tok.DSC_0001DSC_0002DSC_0003

Then we see our 1st moose.  As time went on we saw another.  Plus we saw 11 Trumpet Swans.DSC_0007

Then we saw this cop that had this tanker pulled over.  The driver is on the left with his hands up in the air.  As we went by the comp was putting him in handcuffs.  That’s all we know.DSC_0015

Our first sighting of the Alaska Pipeline.DSC_0018DSC_0021DSC_0024DSC_0026

Here’s Carol, Sue and Jon at our site.  This site was $20 bucks and no hook ups.  Not really worth it even in Alaska.  We had fun with Jon & Sue.  Their heading for Valdez because their mail is being forwarded there.  We sat out probably about 4 hours or so.  Temps were in the 50’s and very cloudy.DSC_0027

Our site is next to Jon & Sue’s site. DSC_0028

Here’s a fast running stream behind us all.DSC_0029

It rained some last night but not heavy.  This morning we head North about 30 miles and turn left on to the Glen Highway.

We got word that “Kay” Peterson quietly passed away Monday night.  Cathy & Bud and all her relatives got to be with her.  She’s with Joe now.  Joe, here comes those “Hamburger Helpers”.  Sorry Joe, we kept her down here as long as we could.

Retirement means getting older and saying Goodbye to friends.

See ya when we see ya Kay.
