This old fellow drove this van from San Francisco to Alaska and was on his way home when he stopped in at the lodge for gas and coffee. It has to be the strangest vehicle that I have seen on this highway. I didn't ask what sort of mileage he gets, but with all of those eagle statues sprouting out from the top and sides of the van, I'll bet it wasn't great. Traffic is slowing down now, as the height of the tourist season is over. And.... the fall rains have begun. Maybe some of the forest fires will now be quenched.
