Pet-Friendly Canada

We were in Canada for almost half of our trip to Alaska (a total of 11 nights). We’ve been to Canada before, and I am sure that Mark and I will go again. We might even go next year. I am sure trips like that will require more posts about pet-friendly locations in the giant…

Pet-Friendly Alaska

Ripley had a fantastic time while we were in Alaska, and I think Sabre did, too,¬†although she’s such a grouch that she’s a little harder to read. Since we had so much trouble finding things that sounded dog-friendly on the internet before our trip, this week and next week I’m going to post about the…

Alaska Trip 2015: Day Twenty-Three

– Caldwell, Idaho to Cheyenne, Wyoming – It’s been a very long day. Tomorrow looks even worse. We didn’t get any pictures either, at least not really. We only took 74, which is really low for us. Again, tomorrow looks even worse. All we can do is try. We started out at 5 this morning,…

– Prince George, British Columbia to Hope, British Columbia – The weather changed dramatically today. It actually feels like summer now.

Texas to Alaska: Day Nineteen

– Watson Lake, Yukon Territory to Stewart, British Columbia – We made it back into Alaska today. I know that sounds crazy, especially looking at our locations for today. But it’s true!

Alaska Trip 2015: Day Eighteen

– Haines Junction, Yukon Territory to Watson Lake, Yukon Territory – Today was a quiet day. We didn’t have far to drive, and we were driving mostly though territory that we’d already seen. To top it off, the weather remained rainy and cold for at least part of the day. We got up this morning…

Alaska Trip 2015: Day Seventeen

– Tok, Alaska to Haines Junction, Yukon Territory – Today was a short and quiet day. We didn’t have too many plans, so we took our time this morning. We slept in a bit and went for a run. Tok has a surprisingly good pedestrian trail for such a small town. It is paved and…
