On and On and On… On the Open Road

We finally made it to the lower 48!  It took 11 days to cover 3,678 miles from Denali to Lincoln, Nebraska, where we are visiting with friends for a few days before finishing the trek to the log cabin in Michigan.

Of course, the terrain changed with every passing state or province.  We finally left the northern Rocky Mountains in British Columbia and spent several days crossing the northern plains.  Our photos captured the corresponding changes.

The first several days we spent inching our way through the high mountains.

... and the last several days we flew across the open prairie.

Kaye and I are currently resting up, restocking the fridge, and enjoying the return of decent internet services.  We’re pretty worn out but basking in the accomplishment of driving the Alaska Highway… both ways!  We’ll be writing lots more about our experiences as we get rested up and ready to return to a more normal flow of life.
