Whitehorse, Yukon Territory August 9, 2013

We drove from near Burwash Landing to Whitehorse. After we got to Destruction Bay the road improved 100%. We could actually go  the speed limit and there were no frost heaves or pot holes.

As soon as we got through Destruction Bay I could see what looked like a bear in the road. As we got nearer, we could see that it was a young Grizzly Bear which proceeded to lie down in the middle of the road. There were also 3 other bears off the side of the road. Several people had already stopped to watch them and we turned off the truck so we wouldn't scare them. We watched them for a little while, until they went into the forest.

We drove along Kluane Lake for a long way. When we finally came to a rest area the sign said that Kluane Lake is the largest lake in the Yukon. On one stretch of the lake we could see where the glacier fed river had not mixed with the clearer water of the lake. We both thought that this was interesting to see. Cindy tried to get a picture of the line and I hope you can see it.

After we left Kluane Lake we saw a Black Bear on the side of the road eating berries. We watched it for a while until we got tired of watching and went on.

There were lots more RV's parked here.

We finally got to Whitehorse and stopped for the night at Walmart. There were a lot of other people staying there.

I filled the truck and it took $205.00 worth of fuel. The place I went to was charging $1.379 per liter. This figures out to be about $5.25 per gallon. I thought Whitehorse would be the best price for a 
while, so that’s why I filled there.

At one of the rest stops.

Here I am looking to see if I can figure out whats wrong with the trailer brakes.

Tomorrow we are heading down the Cassiar Highway. Thanks for viewing.
