5 Star Filet Mignon Dinner from the Alcan Motel in Haines, Alaska

Alcan Motel Dinner

Howdy Folks,

Today we left our luxurious digs in Paxson, AK and traveled to Glennallen, AK for breakfast. After deep analytical thought, I split from the B’man and headed north, back to Tok, AK, where once again, we have a room at the Snowshoe Motel. B’man went crazy and rode south over the mountains to Valdez, AK.  After seeing the beginning of the Alaska Pipeline, he thought it only right that he should see the end. I said, “Good for you,” and continued on to Tok! (Goto Map Below)

The road from Glennallen was under construction for 14 miles.  It was quite the slow-go for a while, but it did pass through some nice mountains and  scenery.
