Day 32 – Glennallen, AK to Haines Junction, YT, Canada

Day 32 – Glennallen, AK to Haines Junction, YT, Canada     09/21/10     Mileage: 443    

This morning may have been the coldest yet as the bike and the ground had a thick layer of frost. The temperature was in the 20’s, but it’s supposed to warm up to the low 50’s by the afternoon. Given the cold morning air, I waited until 10am before setting out for Haines Junction. Once on the road it was all business and I was hard on the throttle to make time. I did stop for one token picture, but because most of today was backtracking over ground I had already covered, I wasn’t compelled to stop for pictures despite the good scenery.

Once in Haines Junction, I found a room for $50 CAD. After updating the blog, I called it a night.

    Enjoy the passage. Imagine the first time someone found there way there. In Anchorage, our Arm is called Turnagain because when Capt Cook was working his way up they would go so far and then the waters proved fruitless…so he said “turn again’!! Next time you come we will take you to Captain Cook’s at the top oif the towers…..excellent food and a view to die for!!

    Are you deck sleeping or did you get a birth?

    Lenny, it was great talking to you just before. Now I know not to worry for the next few days because you will on a ferry and going on and off for the next few days. I understand that you cannot leave your tracker on and I hope that you get on the ferry you are trying to get on right now……..there should always be room for one more motorcycle.

    Stay warm and stay well and enjoy the beauty of Alaska. Love ya, Mom

    Take care,
