Alaska Trip - Weeks 3 to 4

After leaving Whitehorse, we had another day of beautiful scenery. On June 1st , we arrived at a one horse town in the Yukon Territory called Pelly River Crossing. This was just a one-night stop at an abandoned government campground (62.8264, -136.5845). At least it was abandoned while we were there. By morning, there were 5 campers using the campground for the night. However, it looks like they m...

Teslin Lake Campground, Yukon, Canada

Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada
Here's a short aerial video of Teslin Lake Government Campground in the Yukon Territory, Canada. I filmed this with my 3DR Iris+ quadcopter (drone), using a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. I'm still learning how to best make these videos. This video was made using a GPS assisted "loiter" mode, which created much of the jitters. The Drone kept wanting to adjust itself to remain in the correct locat...

Alaska Trip - Week 2

After leaving Quesnel, we moved another 170 miles to the small town of Mackenzie ( May 20th - 21st). We've been moving slowly, ensuring we enjoy the trip. Why drive all day, just to get exhausted? We may have some long stretches, but we're all much happier if we keep our journey to under 4 hours a day. Mackenzie is a little off the main route, 17 miles each way to be exact. But there were two reas...

Our Alaska Trip Begins

Connie had a great time with daughter Leslie and grand-daughters Kaylee and Khloe at their "tea-party". We attended another soccer game with Khloe then spent our last day in the Seattle area making some final purchases for our Alaska trip. We left the Seattle area on May 12th and headed North to Arlington, WA. Using the Casino Camper website, we stayed a couple nights at the Angel of the Wind casi...
