U.S. 1: Alaska
Crossing from the Yukon into Alaska I said goodbye to Canada and hello to the U.S. As I freeswam down the Yukon River there seemed little difference between the two countries, with wondrous nature in both. The bloody salmon were a bit of a nuisance though, jumping out of the water and hitting me on the bonce all the time!
I lunched in Fairbanks, and feeling re-energised I crossed the Alaska Range, including Mt. McKinley during the afternoon. Great views.
I arrived at Anchorage before dark, and crossed over to Kodiak Island for a good night’s kip. No sign of any bears thankfully!!
