Yukon Territorry on June 19-21
After leaving the Icefields Parkway we worked our way toward Whitehorse and Dawson City in the Yukon. Whitehorse is the junction where you take either the Alaska Highway west into Alaska or do the Klondike Loop north to Dawson City and cross the Canadian-Alaskan border by driving the Top Of The World Highway. We choose the Klondike Loop and crossed the boarder on June 21, the longest day of the year. In Alaska that means 23 hours of daylight on that day. We stayed 2 nights in Whitehorse at a very nice, clean campground called Hi-Country Rv and Campground. We left there on the 21st, had lunch in Dawson City, took the ferry across the Yukon River, drove the Top Of The World, did the boarder crossing, and drove the Taylor Highway to Eagle, Alaska where we set up camp. That was all in one day! This post will have pictures of Whitehorse and Dawson City, cool towns with all the history of the Gold Rush to look at, then tomorrow I'll do Top Hwy. , Taylor Hwy. and the city of Eagle. Top of the World and Taylor Highways are each 60 mile dirt stretches of hairpin curves on the side of the mountains and I can't believe we did all that in one day.
Good Night All, Thanks for tuning in. Love, Dave and Barb
