We left Watson Lake in the dark early this morning. As the sun came up, the rains began. The sky was full of clouds much of the day. The rare glimpses of scenery we saw were beautiful lakes, rivers and mountains. The distance markers in today’s stretch were marked 2 km apart, rather than 5 km apart as they were previously.
We stopped in Whitehorse for fuel and lunch. We met families from Calgary and Quebec and enjoyed sharing travel stories.
We looked for caribou, elk and bison throughout our 305 mile drive to Haines Junction, but came up empty handed.
We are staying at a Bed & Breakfast which includes free Internet, but a limited amount as it is via satellite. Photos coming soon.
