North To Alaska - and "The Dalton Hwy"
Friday morning, we awoke to more rain! After eating the remainder of the bread & canned meat - leftover from the ferry - and having a coffee, we headed north to Fairbanks, AK.. The Alaskan border is just a few miles from Beaver Creek, Yukon. Even though we had been in Alaska the previous day, this seemed more exciting; being in Alaska - via the Alaskan Highway - the way it was meant to be. It was about 300 miles to Fairbanks. We would be there in the afternoon. The weather improved and became quite warm (70* F). In Fairbanks, Sarge and I parted ways - he to do his business. We will reconnect on Saturday afternoon, to prepare for the trip to Prudhoe Bay, AK. - via "The Dalton Hwy". We hope to depart Fairbanks early Sunday - weather permitting. I got a room at the University of Alaska (dorms) for two nights, washed my motorcycle and hunkered down for the night.
