Most Memorable Travel day Yet- Mosquito Alley
We recently experienced our most memorable travel day. Ever. It started out as a great day and ended as... well you will find out soon. It started out as a normal day. We left our previous overnight and headed out to keep on our way to Alaska. Our goal was Dawson city, YK from Whitehorse, YK. It was about 250 miles. We made a handful of educational stops along the way, resulting in us having to stop sooner than our destination. We decided to boondock on the side of the road at Gravel Lake.... REALLY. BAD. IDEA!!! While we were setting up, we realized there was a TON of mosquitoes!!
|See all the black dots on our door? Those are all mosquitoes!!|
*Funny story, our friends actually kept the note we wrote them, and taped it to their fridge. I'm not completely sure why. Most likely because now we look back and laugh about that time that we moved at 2 o'clock in the morning.
**Or so we thought, we were still getting bitten for about 5 days afterward, but it was substantially better than "Mosquito Alley"
