"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Jasper to Watson Lake

Short and sweet.  Wifi is hard to come by on the Alaskan Highway.  Very thankful for the visitor centers along the way.  They’ve all been awesome.  The sign I’ve been looking for.

We’ve seen lots of wildlife.  Moose, elk, fox and other assorted species.  And, BEARS.  Black bears, Cinnamon black bears, and even a Grizzly enjoy some road kill

And, my favorite of all the bears.  Just sitting, enjoying the flowers.

Wish I had the time to download the other camera, as well as my phone.  Some awesome photos on them.  Guess I’ll post them in September….jc
