Day 7 – Travel Day to Whitehorse
Today was a travel day, mostly riding from Dawson City in the Yukon Territory to Whitehorse.
Lots of pretty scenery along the way, a couple of stops for comfort stations. We had lunch at a campground, that is setup for bus tours. The native Indians run it, and I don’t remember their tribal name. They are called “First Nations” here, instead of Native American Indians. The food was a choice of soups, salad, dessert and tea or water.
This road is desolate. If you break down, there is no cell service, and it could be days before someone tells someone about your car in the ditch. Traffic is very light on this road. We saw a car in the ditch, and the bus driver said it had been there 3 weeks. Getting a wrecker to come get you also is a trick. We may have passed through a half dozen towns, none with any major services. 390+ miles between Dawson City and Whitehorse.
We got to the hotel around 6:30PM. We need to be up and bags out for pickup at 6:45 in the morning, and begin our trip to
The flower of the Yukon Province. They are just starting now, and will be all over the place next month. The flower blooms from the bottom to the top. You can see the top skinny part, they will eventually bloom and look like the bottom. When the last bloom falls, it is said to predict the first snow 3 weeks later.
