Scenic Drive to Whitehorse, Yukon

Saturday, June 2, 2007

0 °F

We pack up again, but this morning we have an audience. The tourists from the Princess cruise ship watch us as we pack up, and one group of younger people even take a picture of Jere emptying the tanks at the dump station. We’ve had groups of people this week stop and point at our RV as they talk about it, but I haven’t seen anyone take a picture of us before this morning.

No blue skies today and we have a brief shower as we get ready to leave, but the day seems to get better as it goes on. The drive to Whitehorse is on the Klondike Highway and through some beautiful scenery.


We see the train we took yesterday at Summit Lake when we drive by on the Klondike Highway.


More beautiful scenery along the Klondike Highway when we reach the Yukon Territory, especially Emerald Lake:



We get to Whitehorse, set up camp at the Hi Country RV Park and then relax before driving into Whitehorse for dinner at McDonalds (we let Joe choose—and it’s been weeks since we stopped at a McDonalds, and it will be weeks before we get to another McDonalds). Then we stop at the Whitehorse Visitors’ Center.

When we get back to the campsite, we find out that we missed some excitement – there was a bear in the campground. We’re sorry we missed that. Oh well.

We spend the evening at the trailer with the TV and go up to the office to check our email with their ‘sometimes working’ wifi connection—we didn’t wifi or TV the last 4 days at Skagway.
