2nd Bear of the Day2nd Bear of the Day2nd Bear of the Day

1st bear disappeared before we got close enough for photos
Long day today - - something over 275 miles. Started out on Cassiar Hwy from Dease Lake. Road was multiple surface treatment type road and had lots of pot holes, dips, and bumps. There were several short and one long section of just gravel road. Did get to see three bears and a fox today. Pictures of a couple of the bears, but not the fox. Stopped at a wayside at a small crystal clear lake for lunch. We could see a Northern Pike around 24" long amongst the sunken logs in the lake. Also stopped at Pine Lake to take pictures of the perfectly still water and the reflections of the mountains. Alaska Highway is in really good shape - - better than some of the interstates in OK !!!. Kerry checked the sun set and sun rise times for Teslin tonight - - Sun sets at 11:35 PM? and rises at around 4:15. Makes for a very short night. We're all so tired, sleeping won't be a problem - - getting up might be. Need to call the Alaska Marine Highway System tomorrow AM to make a reservation to go from Skagway to Haines AK on Thursday. If we can't get on the boat, we'll set up camp in Carcross, YT, then drive down to Skagway and back to Carcross. If we can't make the ferry, we'll just skip Haines.
