Alaska Trip Day 31

July 30




Hello All

We started the day with breakfast at the motel next door to the one that we stayed in at Watson Lake.  It was a buffet Candy and I had French toast, eggs, hash brown potatoes the food was ok.  It started to rain hard around 3:00 AM and was raining when we packed up.  We spent the next 130 miles in the rain.  The temp was is the low 50.  We stopped at Laird Hot Spring and I took a dip.  It stopped raining when we arrived.  On the way back from the springs it started to rain again. We put the rain suits back on, and rode all but the last 20 miles in the rain.  We only went to Fort Nelson instead of going on to Dawson Creek.  We are planning on going their tomorrow.   We saw one black bear today and a lot of bison and a red fox.  It was a nice trip but quit cold.  About on hour from Fort Nelson the temp drop to 43 Degf and there was about two inches of snow on the side of the road.  We are staying at a Ramada Inn for tonight.  Went around 340 miles today
