We entered Alaska on May 10 by ferry and explored the Inside Passage for a month before moving on to the rest of the road system in the state from early June through all of August.

We exited Alaska on September 1, and then spent three weeks making our way back through Canada including a week in Jasper National Park and Banff National Park.
