In the morning we stopped by the library so Cari could see what it was like. She said it was a very sad library because all of the books were new and unused. They sure weren't very busy when we showed up other than one guy sitting playing solitare on a computer.

Nothing is quite like having a mentally tasking trip in front of you that you already committed to doing and can't back out of. Returning down the Dempster is such a trip. Other than a chip in the windshield near the beginning, we had a rather uneventful trip back down. We arrived in Dawson City right around 8pm, giving a total drive time of about 12 hours. We took the ferry across the river to the west bank at a "camping hostel" (never seen one of these before) where you could camp but there was no electricity or running water.

Not too exciting of a day, other than getting to review all the Dempster scenery again.
