Didn't know where we'd go, just went. Along the Alaska Highway between Whitehorse and Beaver Creek (my hometown). Took the little fishing boat too, just in case there was a tempting lake.

Full story and more images at http://suethomas.ca/20130831_HainesJct-Snag.html

Here's a sampling ...

Great pics Sue

I just camped at Snag Junction last week on my way home to AK from Oregon.

Nice little campground... it's a regular stop for me when driving to and from the lower 48.

Sue,
fine pix of your travels. I smell a little photoshopping in there. We did an LA/AK/LA in 2003 from May 31st to July 1st and encountered long, dry days with few insects. We want to make another appearance in late August to get the color and shorter, cooler days with maybe a little weather thrown in....in other words just like you just did.
regards, as always, jefe

Sue, thank you for posting. You are a National Treasure. Your posts and website enrich my life and I appreciate your sharing your life with us.

My trip to Alaska in 2005 was, for me, the trip of a lifetime. When I stopped in Faro and was telling the gas station owner how much I enjoyed the Yukon, he suggested that I move there. Many times I wish that I had.

I am glad you have the courage to live your dream.

Other than some cropping or straightening (I take many of the pictures out the truck window while DH drives), then reducing the file size for posting and adding the watermark, there is no editing.

Sometimes I think about de-saturating the reds and yellows BUT those ARE the colours, so why change it?

This the Top of the World Highway outside of Dawson City the first week of September 2012.

In brilliant sunshine the colour is almost painful on the eyes!
Perhaps because we don't smog or pollution filtering the light.
DH says we live in high-definition; it certainly is a photographer's delight!

Even during June

Then there were these characters next to our cabin a couple of weeks ago and all around it this week too, bugling & screeching.

Nice photos.

That shot looking east on the White River from the Alaska Highway is really great.

I enjoyed and bookmarked your website.

Thanks.

Garsh Darn It!! After looking at your pictures and those of someone else who must have 4x4 trucks, I am coming to the conclusion that when I replace my 1999 F-250, I'll have to spend the extra $$ for 4x4 so that the wife and I can get to these beautiful off-pavement places. This forum is costing me money[emoticon]
