Erv and Lois Rockhill left Anderson on May 31, 2017, drove through Canada via the Alaska Highway to Dawson Creek, British Columbia, where they caught the Top of the World Highway, then entered Alaska on June 23. They toured the state for two months, driving into the Arctic as far as Deadhorse (Prudhoe Bay).
They also visited Chicken, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Denali, Chitina, Delta Junction, Seward, Homer, and places in between. They boarded an overnight ferry in Haines, Alaska, that delivered them to Prince Rupert, B.C., on August 25. On September 18 they pulled back into Anderson, having driven 13,640 miles round trip! They towed a camper and enjoyed many state, provincial, and national parks, as well as other federal lands and a few county and city parks.
This Alaska trip is just one of the many adventures that Lois and Erv have had over the years, near their Anderson home and through many parts of the U.S. and Canada, as well as Turkey, where they once served as Peace Corps volunteers. Erv is an accountant, and Lois was Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana for 23 years. (She was also our Audubon chapter president from 1995-1997.)
Come see photos and hear stories of Lois and Erv’s adventures at our chapter meeting on Wednesday, March 21! Chapter business and refreshments will begin at 7 p.m. at Kennedy Library, followed by the Rockhills’ program at 7:15. Non-Audubon members are welcomed, so bring a friend!
