Thanks again - this cannot help but be a great trip!

Same weather here, though probably warmer (we just had some thunder and heavy rain—it's not supposed to rain in Colorado in February). It hard not to have a wonderful time on a trip to Alaska and NW Canada. Not matter how long you take, it's never enough, but you'll be really glad to get home too.

A final thanks for all the advice - the trip has just finished - and what a trip it was .... some 4,000 pictures later there is no question that future road trips will have a tough act to follow.....

We had put many of the spots suggested through this thread on our "list" of places to see or things to do - we hit most of them - but not all .... two we regret missing were Kennicott and Telegraph Creek (rain and fog on both days) ..... maybe they will be our hook to return .....

A couple of the real gems included the Toaster Museum in Stewart B.C. (thanks Gene - it was closed - but we had a hoot anyway just looking through the windows - even got some reasonable pictures) - and also the George Johnston Museum in Teslin.

Our biggest memories? It would be tough to make a short list - Muncho Lake Provincial Park (BC), Frantic Follies, Dawson City, Tombstone Mountains, Top of the World, Denali, Homer, Kenai Fjords National Park, Valdez, Haines (the bears), Skagway, Beaver Creek, Kluane Lake, Cassiar highway, Stewart/Hyder, Banff, Jasper, the Prairies (going and coming), the Corner Gas set (might have to be Canadian to understand this one) ...... every single spot had its own attraction and its own set of adventure ......

I've posted a few of the the "Airstream" themed pictures in the Photo section under Members Photos - title is Road Trip 2011 - Alaska.

Thanks again,

Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. If you post the 4,000 photos on this thread at 4 per post, only 1,000 posts to get them all.

The Toaster Museum was closed when we were there too. Someday we will get inside….
