Day 83: Tuesday, August 6, 2013. Valdez to Tok, ALaska. Tok RV Village Site 705. 255 miles traveled.
Our last night in Alaska was spent back on the Alaska Highway in Tok, 90 miles from the Canadian border. The drive was beautiful and I am not going to bore you with pictures. As soon as we arrived at the campground we spent about an hour washing the truck and fifth wheel to try to remove a month’s worth of dirt and mud.
Our last meal in Alaska was a feast of Red King Crab legs we bought at a fish market in Valdez and cooked on the stove in our kitchen. Eaten under a tree on our picnic table it was absolutely the best meal we have had on this entire trip.

Wait a minute, crab legs in the land from which they come ? I didn’t think it was possible after watching all those episodes of “The Deadliest Catch” and never seeing those guys steam any up ! Y’all rock ! Be careful coming home,
They were out of this world delicious!!!
Great post Beth!! Truly, I wouldn’t be bored by travel photos from Alaska : )
What, the last day! Aren’t you guys going to stop at Hyder?
Yes we are going to Hyder but we will probably stay in Stewart. Maybe I should have said the last day for now. When we passed by Haines Junction it was all we could do not to turn!
This is a great time to be there. Salmon will really be running and there should be plenty of bears to view. Sometimes you see a wolf too. Can’t wait for the pictures. Do drive up to Salmon Glacier. It is awe-inspiring!
Thanks for stopping by our ‘great land’ and remember the door is always open.
