"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

Watson Lake to Fairbanks.

I’ve taken hundreds of pictures with my two cameras, as well as my phone.  There is no way I can possibly do a separate post on all the different things we’ve seen.  What follows are an assortment of shots taken as we made our way to Fairbanks. 

First some scenery, which includes a couple of pictures of a dust storm in the Yukon.  Who would have thought the Yukon and Arizona would share those events.

All this traveling is tiresome.

But, the shopping is fun.

  5. Every shot and view are superb. I think you've taught Sally how to take pics. Keep on clicking and enjoying every minute. I hope your dust storm didn't come with triple digits.

  6. It was great getting to talk to you at breakfast in Talkeetna. Wishing you safe travels on this journey and many more to come.
