This page continues our driving adventure up the Elliott Highway from Page 3, and as it said on Page 3, this page begins at 10:07 AM with a stop at the Tatalina River for some fishing.  Then there is a brief stop at the Tolovana River Wayside to do more fishing, and then we continue up to Milepost 6 on the Dalton Highway, where we also tried fishing in Lost Creek.  There are a few photos from July 19th as we returned home, a few from July 27th at home, some garden photos from July 30th and in conclusion there are some photos of "Kazuya's Baked Delights".  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

July 18th Continues From Page 3 (at 10:07 AM)
  Here are three shots which were taken while we were stopped at the Tatalina River, at Milepost 44.7 of the Elliott Highway. This is the old abandoned bridge over the river, needless to say, we did not drive across this bridge. There are a few primitive campsites at this location too, but we did not stay here. We stopped for about 2 hours and fished, but we did not catch a single fish.

  Here is a final shot of the Tatalina River in first position. The second shot shows our rig parked in the Tolovana River Wayside, at Milepost 57.1 of the Elliott Highway. We fished here for about an hour and then we continued up the Elliott Highway to Milepost 73.1, the Junction with the Dalton Highway, which was previously known as "The Haul Road". The sign in the third photos is at about Milepost 1 of the Dalton Highway.

  Here are two more shots of the Dalton Highway sign, both with Kazuya. The third shot shows the TAPS (Trans-Alaska Pipeline System) from the sign.

  The first shot in this row was taken while looking north from the center of the Dalton Highway, right in front of the sign. The second and third shots show Lost Creak, at Milepost 5.6 of the Dalton Highway. We also tried our hands at fishing here, again, with no success.

  Milepost 5.6 was as far as we went on the Dalton Highway. The first photo in this row was taken as we drove back to the Junction with the Elliott Highway. The second and third photos show the Junction of the Elliott Highway and the Dalton Highway.

  The first shot in this row shows the Elliott Highway and Dalton Highway Junction - the "Manley Hot Spring" road sign has been enlarged and included. It's another 77 miles to Manley Hot Spring and the road is all gravel. The second shot shows a highway sign. The third shot shows our pickup canopy and some cooking going on. We have never remembered to take a shot with our sleeping bags laid out and all.

  On July 19th, as we were headed for home, we stopped at this Pipeline Access Road because we could see a field of Fireweed on the mountain and we were curious as to whether we could easily get to it. The answer was no, so we zoomed in as much as we could.

  On July 27th I saw this very young Red-backed Vole (Myodes rutilus) exploring in our yard. Was it lost, kicked out of the nest, or what? It seems too young to be out on its own. In the third shot those are chunks of walnuts that Kazuya offered to it. It greedily ate some of them and then moved on.

  The first shot in this row is a duplicate of the photo of our garden that was included with the May photos on Page 4, just after it was planted. The second shot is a photo of our garden which was taken on July 30th. Look how tall the peas are. We have eaten peas, lettuce, rhubarb, green onions and kale. That black flowerpot you can see on the right side contains a single plant of Perilla - we have eaten several of the leaves of it too. The third image is a schematic. I'm not sure that you can read it, but the Mizuna bolted and was useless and the two types of radishes bolted and were worthless. At this time we have a second crop growing (second row from the left). Now it's nearly getting dark at night, so maybe it will not bolt this time.

End July 30th, Begin Kazuya's Baked Delights
  Here are three shots of a Rhubarb-Strawberry Upside Down Cake that Kazuya made. Yummy! We found a "U-Pick" Rhubarb place for $1.00 per pound and picked 5 pounds of it.

End July 2017's Photos, Begin Miscellaneous Links
  Here are links to separate web pages - all of them will open in a new window (or new tab). The first link shows some photos of our DVD Collection, an AVI Movie of our Home Theater System and 9 photos of our Sharp Aquos TV. The 2nd link shows our entire DVD collection in DVD Profiler (if you're asking yourself what might be good to rent for the weekend). The DVD's will be sorted by date purchased. You can click on the "Title" Column to sort that way if you desire. The 3rd link shows our entire DVD collection in php DVD Profiler, which is much more sophisticated than the plain vanilla DVD Profiler just above it. The 4th link takes you to a set of pages which show you the FRONT cover-art of our entire DVD collection.
