After almost 2 days of solid rain we left Fort Nelson, British Columbia under overcast skies yesterday morning. The mountains got bigger but unfortunately the skies never really cleared, so often the mountain tops were obscured in clouds. Still, the rugged landscape was always with us..
We also ran into road construction but this is expected on the highway every year
Saw moose, caribou, sheep and a large herd of bison…..
The places on the map turn out to be very small but iconic such as this stop at Toad River and the one next to it at Contact Creek
The highlight was yesterday afternoon when we reached Muncho Lake and stopped at the Muncho Lake RV Park. This is camping at it’s finest. Ronnie was so happy. The setting is spectacular on this beautiful mountain lake about 8 miles long and a mile wide…We had a campfire which the owner and his dog delivered to our site…we walked by the lake…we talked for an hour or more to a Canadian couple who live full time in their 40 foot diesel pusher….here are some scenes from the Muncho Lake RV Park
Today we entered the Yukon Territory…crossing the 60 Degree North Latitude parallel. Even this late in July the days are very long….Watson Lake has a couple of interesting attractions, the most famous is the Signpost Village with over 70,000 signs from around the world
We also went to a high tech planetarium show about the size of the universe and some great photography of the aurora borealis seen in different parts of the world….the campground is in the middle of the town and realy boring….we loved Muncho Lake…tomorrow we will try to get Whitehorse.
