TravelPod Member ReviewsBig Horn Hotel Watson Lake
Long day after a late start. Got in at 8:45 after driving almost 600 miles. Lots of road construction. Hard to get use to it not being dark at night and no AC even if its 60 outside its still stuffy inside. Hate having the windows open, I can hear everything outside. Cars people

As we approached the Liard River, things started to get smoky and visibility decreased to less than five miles. With the river and Alaska Highway in sight, we continued. We could see the fires burning on the hillsides and at times, the smoke obscured the river and ...
... 000 hectares (one hectare = approx. 2.5 acres) of forest. I think we drove through the burned area for about an hour! New growth is evident but still a full of ugly tree trunks that were once Aspen and pines. The Milestone book comments that it is now good mushroom picking! And wild flowers, mostly what I think are Lupines were everywhere in the new growth. Quite a contrast.
Campgrounds are few ...
