The beginning and end of the Dalton Highway. We did it!

Hilltop Fuel Station, Fairbanks, Alaska

Drive Down the Remainder of the Dalton Highway

Tom and I woke up around 4:30 to a few mosquitoes buzzing around this morning. The door didn't get closed all the way when we had finished talking with the police officer so we had a few visitors. We hit the road again and drove until 6:30 to the Yukon River Camp to get gas and breakfast. We found out they didn't open until 9:00 so we slept for a little while longer in their parking lot then went inside and had breakfast.

Back on the road for a few more hours and we were home. Boy that motorhome never looked so good! We unloaded the Yukon and took stuff out of the RV that had to go back into the Yukon then just crashed for the rest of the evening. I think we were all in bed by 9:00.
