Sunday, May 20-Midnight photo, Delta Junction

I went out about midnight and took a photo.
Midnight at our boondock spot
We drove to Delta Junction - saw a couple moose along the way.
Stopped at the Visitor Center which is also the end of the Alaska Highway. We asked about dump station, potable water and laundry - the girl got 1 out of 3 right!

Yes, a couple of mosquitoes have found me, but they weren't quite this big.....yet!!

Drove on to the historic Rika Roadhouse for lunch. I thought it would be a sit down restaurant, but was a help yourself soup, sandwich and pie. Not getting rave reviews.

Off to do chores where the girl at the visitor center sent us - laundromat had 3 washers so had to wait. Dump and water were closed for the winter so back to Rika Roadhouse where they were available.
Stopped at a roadside pullout south of Delta Junction for the night near Fort Greely. Quite surprised about 9 p.m. when Taps was played over a loud speaker!

  1. That is one big mosquito. Makes you itchy just looking at it. I imagine you may be kind of early for a lot of the services to be open. Should be better after Memorial Day.
