Final Installment

July 3, as it turned out, was our last day of tolerable weather; afterwards, we enjoyed grey skies & frequent rain as we headed back south towards Vancouver.

I'll leave everyone with the last few photos from the Stikine Canyon & Telegraph Creek.
Here's the Stikine Grand Canyon from a small rest area:

We continued our way along the canyon towards Telegraph Creek - stopping for a few photos along the way. Again, some of these shots date from a prior trip down this road:

These two shots were taken from more or less the same spot, in two different years:

Finally, we arrive at the historic village of Telegraph Creek, located at the head of navigation on the Stikine, which continues its flow southwestward, carving its way through the Coast Mountains to empty into the sea near Wrangell, AK. Telegraph Creek dates from the ill-fated Collins Overland Telegraph venture of the early 1860s and hasn't changed much since:

A few more shots of the Stikine Canyon to finish off. Hope you all enjoy them!

until our 9th visit to the Royal and 10th stay in Playa!

Thanks a bunch!

Glad you enjoyed these photos. Very few people get to experience this remote and scenic region. It's well worth the trip & I highly recommend it for anyone who is looking to vacation well off the beaten path.

This is the kind of place that allows you to reconnect with your soul, which is a big part of the reason why I travel this way almost every year.

Your pictures are breath-taking. The mountains are so spectacular. Have driven through the mountains in B.C. and Alberta many times however, Alaska is on my bucket list....thanks for sharing!

Wow. Just wow.

I have always wanted to take a trip to the Yukon and Alaska. Started planning a trip probably 15 years ago, when I was married, but I think we ended up going somewhere else... Glacier or maybe it was the trip to southwest Colorado (Durango/Telluride/Ouray). (Someday it'll be Alaska; I have Alaska and Wisconsin to check off my list then I'll have visited all 50 states. )
