Two young 50-something females. One big adventure exploring the Americas. Have liquidated everything they own and packed a Saturn Vue with bare necessities to set out on this journey. Planting seeds at each juncture symbolizing their new growth. With an open mind and heart, ready to get a true view of this world.

The long day's journey is only halfway fulfilled at this point. Lisa and Matt arrive with our coach to whisk us up the very desolate Taylor Highway. (Note: This highway will wash out four days after we traverse and be closed for the duration of the season. Similar happenings have been in our wake this whole course across America. Should we be noticing something here?)
The washboard 100-mile highway will bring us to our resting destination this evening in Tok, Alaska. We have our personal pilot car riding a bit ahead of us, radioing of any specific road issues or the occasional approaching traffic. Celeste is coveting this luxury, considering the many back roads we've taken on our own. Some of these mountain roads get a little winding and steep, needless to say. To have Lisa at the wheel and Scott guiding ahead puts all our minds at ease and leaves us wide open to fully take in and appreciate the amazing sights. There is a reason we're traveling this deserted road, it's absolutely breathtaking.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
