After having that wonderful breakfast and a very interesting stop, we were on our way.
The Klondike is not very interesting with hardly any little convenience stores to stop at for miles. When you do come to one they are closed or for sale. There are no houses that we can see along the road. There is just not much civilization at all out here! We were glad to see a squirrel & we called him our wildlife sighting for the day. Can't even say the scenery was pretty, mostly just trees and not a lot of mountains. What I'm saying is I don't recommend this highway, problem you have no choices from Whitehorse to Dawson City. The road is not real good, chip & seal and a lot of frost heaves in the road. They have red flags along the road and a sign which you soon learn what it
means!! You need to go slower. It took us about 4 hours to go about 180 miles to Dawson City.
We stayed in a campground the night before that was free. No services and plenty of mosquitoes! We even cooked out after we fogged the area. They even have free wood.
On this road a fur piece up is Five Finger Rapids. This where the miners tried to take their rafts & boats through but it was so narrow they had to wench their selves through. Later they blasted to make the passage bigger. They had an observation deck that my camera could zoom in and get the shot. BUT we ended up going down the stairs taking the path to the river through the woods AND MOSQUITOES which ate us alive. The killer was coming back up the stairs.
Way out at the water is where we walked to
Well here we are**Now we walk all the way back
Are you Serious ?!
Oh well sure got our exercise !! Need it for what came next !
An unpaved street in downtown Dawson City, Yukon
Show at Downtown Gerties
Having a dessert after the show at Klondike Kates. YUMMY!
The streets in Dawson City are not paved, just all packed down dirt. For real.
Gotta go my internet time is almost timed out.
Until next time
