Haines Junction to Whitehorse

Haines Junction has a monument which has all of the animals you will find in the region on it. There is also a Quonset Hut which is a church. As a typical tourist a took a few pictures as we were out for our morning walk.

Leaving Haines Junction, we are headed for Whitehorse. As we traveled along the Alaska Highway today, a coyote was grazing on the side of the highway and was very curious of me as I snapped a few pictures.

In Whitehorse, we were able to get the van serviced, for the second time in 3 weeks. We have put on another 4,000 miles since we last passed through here. The service man tried to charge me $63 for an oil change. I told him I was in 3 weeks earlier and it was $43. He asked me if I still had my receipt, which I did, and when I presented it to him, he took the extra $20 off. Talk about getting ripped off.

We camped at the Hi Country RV, which we have decided is the number one campground in all of our stays thus far on our trip. The cleanliness of the whole campground and the friendliness and the professionalism of the owners and staff make it a pleasure for their guests to stay here. Hi Country is a sterling example of Canadians who charge a fair price and bend over backwards to make their customers feel welcomed and appreciated.
