Anchorage to Denver
We just completed our drive from Anchorage, Alaska to Denver. Left August 10, arrived last night, August 30. We took our time and had a wonderful trip. Cracked windshield is the only problem we had.
Alcan is in fairly good shape, some real rough parts but really not bad. First time for me in a MH, been by car serveral times. Friendly people all the way, good territorial and provincial camp grounds. Did not try private on that section at all and only a couple places overall on the whole trip.
Yukon territorial camps provide free wood. BC charged for theirs. Pretty level spots each night, some adjusting at times but pretty darn good.
Went through Jasper and Banff parks on the way down. Then
Glacier, Yellowstone, Devil's Tower, Deadwood, Rushmore, Wind Cave, Crazy Horse, and Badlands.
The two private cg we stayed at we Holy Smokes in Keystone, SD. Not bad. Water, sewer, electric, cable, fairly level. Small but quiet, even though it was right beside the road. We were down a steep embankment and that helped deaden the sound. The other one we stayed at was in Lusk, Wy. BJs. Small but well kept. No trees but level gravel pads with covered picnic tables at each lot. Bathrooms and I think showers, we did not need either. Full hookup like the other one. Very nice lady there.
Last stop was Rocky Mountain National Park. Then the Bud Tour in Ft Collins and on to our son's house outside Denver.
Again, great time. The parks were wonderful, not too crowded. Yellowstone was most crowded but it is so big you really don't notice it much except with an animal jam. Had a few of them.
Flying home next week. Putting RV in storage for a few months then flying back down to continue on. Will do it a month or so at a time. Sure hate that it is over!
