Delta Junction

We left Tok after our overnight stay on our way to our next destination in Delta Junction.  There were several scenic overlooks we stopped at.

And of course, road construction.  This one had a water truck going in front of us to keep dust down.

We stopped at Delta Meat and Sausage for some samples.  We really liked their sausage and left with more than we came with. :)

We arrived at the Visitor's Center in Delta Junction and had our obligatory picture taken at the Mile Marker noting the End of the Alaska Highway.

Jim also had his picture taken with the big mosquito.

We left Delta Junction and proceeded ten miles down the road to Rika's Roadhouse.  This was a popular stop during the early Alcan Highway days, but is now a historic park.  You can also stay overnight here in their parking lot for $5 which we did.

There are a lot of historic and informational displays and building here.

This was the main house with the guest rooms.

Inside are more informative displays.

We left the park and went around to the highway to get our first glimpse of the Alaskan pipeline.

It's something we have heard about all our lives and it's pretty impressive to see it in person.

Tomorrow, our next stop Fairbanks, Alaska's second largest city.
