                  Arrived in Prince George this afternoon. Fantastic weather in the low 50's, compared to 100 at home .

                  We've seen several Arctic Fox's on the highway (mostly campers). Also driven by two Northwood dealers in Canada.

                  Will be leaving for the Cassier Highway on Saturday.

                    Bee lazy RV park was our preference on the last Alaska trip both ways. The granddaughters spent quite a bit of time in the pool.

                      Staying a few days at the Meziadin Lake Provincial Park along the Cassiar Highway. Clean, quiet, 30amp service.

                      It's mosquito season to be sure!

                      We're on the look-out for 'Arctic Rebel' & 'Fox Will Travel'. They are roaming up here somewhere, about a week ahead of us .

                          Love your spot there on the lake. We've never done the Cassiar. We might have to return to Alaska some day & go that way. Thanks for sharing your journey!

                            Thank you.

                            Donna says it reminds her of the Swiss Alps.

                            There's been moose and bears roaming around in the nearby meadow all day.

                              We have entered the Yukon Territory - Lots of moose & bears!

                              Arctic Fox is a dream to tow and everything is working wonderfully.
