The Alcan and Cassiar

We've driven about 1400 miles since the last post. Neither Corrie or I had driven the Cassiar Highway before, so we took a right turn about 250 miles southeast of Whitehorse and found a scenic winding road with little traffic and no lane lines.
Our route so far (blue) and my traditional route (grey) down the Alcan.
Looking up the valley from Kluane Lake in the Yukon.
Looking across Kluane Lake at the Kluane Lake NP and Preserve which border the Wrangell St Elias NP in Alaska. Nearly 100,000 sq km of wilderness lies between here and the end of the road in Nebesna. 
Lots of mountains and no road lines. The Cassiar is my kind of highway. 

Kinaskan Lake where we stopped for dinner and coffee.
Late evening rain in the mountains.
We saw 10 black bears yesterday.
We saw several cubs, but they didn't cooperate for pictures as well.
