July 10, 2011 – WATSON LAKE, YT TO TESLIN, YT
When we woke up this morning the rain had passed and we were fortunate to have another beautiful day with sunshine and interesting cloud formations in the sky which adds so much to the pictures. It was a lovely drive today with many interesting stops along the way. We pulled off the road at Rancheria Falls where we enjoyed a walk through the woods to the falls. Actually, coming from BC, we were not too impressed with what they called “falls”!! However, it was a good place to stop for a bite of lunch in our rigs. At another pull out we met up with a young couple who are biking from Alaska to the tip of Argentina, taking a year and a half to do the trip!! We had a very interesting conversation with them before moving on. Scenery along the way was quite dramatic (hard to catch the vastness in a picture), but we were all disappointed that we did not see any animals all day. After pulling into our camping spot in Teslin, we had our briefing on the next several days in Skagway. Dwain and I enjoyed
the Natural Museum which was part of the campground. The animals were wonderfully displayed in their natural settings, and the Taxidermy work was outstanding.
This was all the wildlife we managed to see today!!
Tomorrow morning we are off to an early start so we can enjoy the full beauty of the trip into Skagway. It is now 9:30 p.m. and the sun is shining brightly outside. Guess we are getting closer to the great North Country.
