A Bad Day on the Alaska Highway

Jul 7, 2017

Carol and I left Alaska and crossed back into Yukon this afternoon. That means we’re back dodging frost heaves and related highway damage. These things are axle busters so we’re driving slowly and being real careful. But not everyone slows down as much as they should.

We came upon this scene where 20-30 cars were parked on the side of the road and everyone was carrying boxes of fruit and vegetables. Scavengers move quickly.  And why not, this produce isn’t making it to market.  Here they are.


When you see people pulled over on the side of the road, you just know what was going to be down in the ditch and sure enough, a destroyed big rig. Ouch!  Heard on the news that it was a Fred Meyer grocery delivery and that the driver was OK. Whew!
