Watson Lake to Whitehorse

This is a truly beautiful place
We left Watson Lake behind and headed west on the Alaska Highway. After yesterday’s awesome scenery today’s views were relatively uneventful. We saw beautiful mountain scenery, but nothing as spectacular as yesterday and we saw no wildlife. At first, I thought it was because of Dave’s speedy driving, but Pete and Carolyn, the wildlife radars, who we saw at the campground later, did not see any either.

We stopped at Rancheria Lodge for coffee and I went out back to take a picture and was jumped by a German Sheppard. I startled him and boy did he startle me. I thought I was going to get ripped to threads, but he just got down and walked away.

We drove over the Continental Divide, and along the Swift River and Teslin Lake and into the town of Teslin. The view from the top of the hill before the famous bridge was outstanding. We had our lunch there and enjoyed the view and the beautiful mid-70’s degree weather. When we arrived in Whitehorse we found an amazing campground, the Hi Country RV Park. It was the cleanest, and most beautiful we have stayed in thus far. With AAA discount we paid $15.00 and the showers are free. This is a great place to stay, they have everything, and I mean everything. We liked it so much and with so much to do in Whitehorse, we decided to stay here 2 nights.
