Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

North to Alaska - The Rush Is On

Hi everyone! We have arrived in Whitehorse and the official travels begin. Not much between here and Fort Nelson, and I really mean that! The scenery vaguely resembles Jasper area, only larger. The main difference is when you see nothing on a map, they mean nothing. No civilization, just miles and miles of highway. The mountains are spectacular, and still in the distance. The Yukon river alongside Whitehorse is expansive.


You may have heard of the forest fires in the north. We actually drove alongside one near Liard Hot Springs area.



The hot springs are magnificent!


We continue to meet our Ontario friends at the campgrounds as we go. What a hoot travelling and camping. Last night we shared our campfire with another couple. They are from BC and he is currently working here.

We are going to do some travelling around this area and stay camped here. I am really looking forward to travelling to Haines and then Skagway by ferry.

We will post again when we have visited the new places!
