Lippi and the oomans took a road trip from Skagway, Alaska to Carcross in the Yukon Territory (gold rush territory). SIL had heard it was a bootiful road to take. So Lippi decided he better supervise SIL's driving.
M said the the scenery was breathtaking. Just sit back and enjoy the car ride.
|Drove from Skagway to Carcross with many stops along the way. It took 2+ hours to drive between 2 of those little red dots at the bottom of the map because it's so beautiful and we kept stopping.|
At one point, SIL stopped the car so everyone could get out to take pictures. Sisfur decided to take Lippi for a walk up the road to see what she could find.
Oh Look, we would have missed the Marmot if sisfur hadn't taken that little walk.
Saw our first Marmot (Horry's Ground Squirrel . Wild critter not at all interested in oomans nor frightened by us. About the size of Mario (12 pounds).
Biggified in the bottom picture so you can see him better. Cute little guy.
|Live in the mountain areas like Alaska, British Columbia, Montana, etc, to name a few. (Not in Wisconsin, so no wonder M had never seen one before).|
Welcome To Carcross, Canada: (Population 0 - the few people that work here live elsewhere!)
Downtown Carcross (Watch traffic closely please) (he he)
"Lippays he's hungry! Oh boy! okay - let's see if we can find a restaurant in town!"i s
he he - this is their drive-in restaurant. (Maybe @Herbie_Cat could open a branch of Herbie's Drive In here). ha ha! Lippi says he had a hot dog tho that was actually pretty good.
See Lippi in the bear's pocket? Dad being silly again!
Carcross also has a museum. The bear was standing just outside dat building. Lippi wanted to know if perhaps this bear was his cousin. That's why D put Lippi in the bear's pocket. Then dad whispered to the bear that he hadn't better hurt Lippi.
After eating our lunch in Carcross, we decided it was time to head back to the ship in Skagway.
Gasp! Bear! Bear! Lippi - behind you.
We drove maybe the equivalent of 1/4 mile and.......
"Bear! Bear! Bear!"
Both were just enjoying a light snack of "whatever" along the roadside, totally unaware and uncaring that we were there, says M.
Back to the ship now. Poor Lippi is all tired out again and can't wait to crawl in bed and take a bear snooze.
See you tomorrow as the ship sets sail for a sea day and stop in Victoria, British Columbia.
