Driving To Alaska...Changing Weather

Another weekend so I am continuing the Alaska Road trip series. Near Hudson's Hope we crossed this beautiful bridge in a light drizzle of rain and later began the climb up into the Rockies.

The rain turned to snow as we approached the summit of Pink Mountain. Luckily we were following a snow plow. By the time we reached the top we were in a white out. Later we heard they closed the road an hour later.








At Laird Hot Springs Provencal Park the sun was shining and it was much warmer. There were some young people taking a dip in the hot water and at one end of the pool the water is so hot that there is a warning sign.

What a change between the second and third picture!
It was better to be in the pool rather than on the road that day, for sure.

I am thoroughly enjoying your road pictures! Those first two shots look so desolate as to be fearsome. The last one is more my speed.

We have lots of springs here in central Florida, but the temp of the water is always 72 degrees.

Interesting that you went from white out conditions to people swimming in a pool in one day. I love that bridge.

I'll bet that pool felt wonderful if they, too, came through the white-out.

Despite the potentially dangerous hot water, the pool looks lots more inviting that the icy road.

The hot springs look inviting.

I guess the air was still cold even thought the water was warm. I've never been to a hot springs, can you tell? ;))
