Day Three, Watson Lake

A travel blog entry by tbasler


Watson Lake is in the Yukon Territory, not a Canadian Province. The road is remarkably good. Really I80 around Sacramento is much worse. Driving today we saw a lot of Bison obstinacies (groups of bison not called herds) and Black Bears.The bears are really black not like the Black Bears at home which are more brown. It's rained and rained and then rained some more. But the scenery can't be ruined by cloudy skies. We followed the ...

The End of the Cassiar

... it. We are using some of the free firewood to get the front tire off the ground to take the front wheel off to get at the speedometer housing, when a truck stops and out jumps a young man Mike, who has everthing in this truck. We become quick friends along with his dog Timber.
We find that the washer looking piece of metal is bent, so I hammer it back ...

Signage Galore

A travel blog entry by chuckschatter


... Alaska during WWII. It has been improved considerably since and is all paved and a beautiful drive.

Taking a detour from our original plan, we went to Carcross. Treva and Nancy had visited this small town on their Holland America land excursion while in Skagway. Cute little town but appears to be completely dependent upon tourists for their commerce. I heard from one of the salespeople ...

Doing the Yukon or..All that glisters is not GOLD

A travel blog entry by chrisandjanet


... Watson Lake. For 3 days we had the most marvellous scenery (and no gold panning), the climax of which was at 3.00a.m one morning as we were camped at a place called Frances Lake, and managed to see a phenomenal sunset (or maybe sunrise). Sadly the 24/7 mosquitoes meant we couldn’t even get out of the van to film. It is difficult to comprehend how invasive and numerous these things are but Janet and I now have a better idea of how Ivor Emmanuel felt at Rorkes ...

Bullwinkle Where Have You Been Hiding????

A travel blog entry by misslexie


... we were past them before we realized what it was and there was no place for us to pull off to get a picture. DARN!!! It must have been a mama grizzly and her two cubs. They looked to be about a year old. We are now crossing the Tetsa River and in front of us is a bald mountain. It’s all rock with no vegetation. We are at 3,600 feet. We are entering Stone Mountain Provincial Park. I can certainly see where it gets its name!! We are passing Summit Lake and ...

    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
