Aug 1 Day 31 Fairbanks to Tok AK

Tok is the only place on the trip we have visited twice. Tomorrow we will go 70 miles to Chicken, AK and then on the next day to Dawson, Yukon. The highlight of today's drive was Rika's Roadhouse an Alaska State Park. Rika's Roadhouse dates back to 1909 and was a stopover place on a trail from Valdez to Fairbanks. It then became a telegraph station, and finally a trucker stop. Mavis was really impressed with the Rika's garden. It is planted in June and ends with the first frost which can be in July. Fortunately this year there has not be a frost and the garden was beautiful. The road from Fairbanks becomes the Alaska Highway at Delta Junction and soon after we saw our first moose. A female and her calf. Tonight we are at the Tok RV Village where we met with another couple, Nancy and Ed, from Ohio. They have a motorhome like ours. They both worked with AT&T and Bell Labs so we had lots to talk about.
