Camping at Lake Inga after a day of driving.  Most of our neighbors were pipeline workers – it was an interesting crowd.

Traffic was sparse (mostly pipeline workers and equipment), the countryside was gorgeous, and the mountain passes were abundant.

The big boy pictured stood in the road for a few minutes, daring us to a game of chicken.

Over these two days, we made great gains in latitude – here’s Eric in the Yukon Territory!
