On the road, a quick pit stop to stretch the legs.
It's July 23rd 2014, and we are camped in Tok Village RV Park in Alaska.



We started the day leisurely with a nice little walk around town.



After breakfast and breaking camp, I took the guys with me to the RV wash and we rinsed some of the dirt off our vehicles.



Liz rounded up the gals, and they walked over to the Tok Tourist Information Center.



The Tok Village Campground is pretty good with pull through sites and full hook-ups.

Once we can see again the chrome on the trucks, we head over to the info center and meet up with the ladies.



We are on the road and head south on Tok Highway #1.



Our aim is to stop at the Wrangell - St. Elias National Park Preserve and go for a little hike.

This preserve is huge. The preserve is the largest area managed by the National Park Service in the United States by area.



A total of 13,175,799 acres or 53,320.57 km².




The preserve borders on to Kluane National Park in the Yukon, Canada to the East.


To the south it borders Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. A huge protected wilderness area combined.

We stop at the Wrangell - St. Elias National Park Preserve park info center and get some information from the staff.




We pack up our back packs, bear spray, and a lunch and set out on a nice little hike.





This hike is just around the corner from the info center and it is only about three km each way down to the river.




Once at the river we have our lunch and scout for moose and bear. We see lots of tracks, but no big beasts.

Once back at our trucks we continue our drive and soon reach Glennallen. We check in at Northern Nights Campground. It is OK.

It got to be "Happy Hour" some place. More pictures here.
