Saturday, June 26, 2010 Tok

This morning we left the Chitina and traveled north to Tok.  The roads were the worst we have had to deal with up to this time.  Many dips in the road due to frost heaves and then areas of gravel.  The scenery was pretty but if the clouds had not been so low hanging on the mountains it would have been nicer.  After getting into Tok and arranging for campsites, Tom and Larry  went to an RV maintenance shop to have the motorhome and truck lubed and oil changed.   Returning to the campground, the clouds became really dark and soon we were having a thunderstorm complete with hail.  We went over to Fast Eddie’s restaurant for dinner to celebrate Larry’s 70th birthday.

We have completed the circle  starting in Tok and now ending in Tok.  Tomorrow we will be heading south back into Yukon Territory of Canada.  This is not the end of our travels in Alaska.  We will be back in Alaska again in a day or 2 as we are headed for Haines.
