Alaska 2013, Day 19, Seattle to Canada
Thursday June 20, 2013
Called from Seattle on AK Ferry reservations, cheaper this year than in 2008. Time spent on the phone delayed us leaving Seattle until 11:00. Onto the next leg, Seattle to Whitehorse Yukon. This is about 1500 miles, will take 3 days and there is not a whole lot in between.
We crossed the border in Sumas WA/Abbotsford BC around 12:30.
From Hope BC to Ashcroft BC is the Fraser Canyon, maybe 80 - 100 mi. The canyon reminds me of the Glenwood Canyon in CO but not as narrow and the Fraser River really has volume. They say the volume is due to snow melt in the Rockies and the volume drops by summer. They raft the river but there is no way you could now.
Rained all day, from Seattle all the way the Cache Creek.
Stayed in Brookview CG in Cache Creek.
302 miles today.
3998 miles so far.
