We drove from Skagway to Teslin Lake and stayed at the Yukon Motel and RV Park for a night. It’s a good halfway point when heading to Watson Lake. It provides 30 amp power and water, but no sewer.
The next morning we drove to Watson Lake to put our signs up in the Sign Forest. It was a beautiful, sunny day and quite warm, an experience this trip has been lacking.
We stayed at Downtown RV, a place we really didn’t appreciate the first time coming up to Alaska, but at that time we didn’t have a washer/dryer in the bus. We had it put in just after we got home that fall, and we still cannot believe we waited so long.
So here in Watson Lake Kathy could easily do a bunch of loads in the convenience of the coach. I think I carried a load or two over to the campground laundry too. The internal W/D can only do small loads, so going to a campground laundry can be helpful with a bunch of towels and sheets or blue jeans.
The day after getting there, we all headed over to the Sign Forest to find spots to hang our signs. We chose a spot very close to our sign from 2019, and I stood pretty high up on the ladder to bolt it onto the provided 4×4. Larry & Sue went a ways over, far from their prior 2 signs, and attached theirs. It was nice and warm, maybe 80 degrees, much nicer than the last sign hanging that was probably 33 degrees and raining, intermittently snowing, back on August 17th, 2019.
We also headed to the small well- stocked grocery store and filled up on foodstuffs for the 3-week trek down the Cassiar Highway. It got a bit smokey from the fire just a bit down that highway, so we were going to be glad to leave, but we had to go down the highway with the forest burning on both sides. But that is for another post. Look for Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride…
Some very interesting clouds were out that day. Chris told us they were lenticular clouds and then sent us a satellite view showing them right in the area of Canada that we were in!!!
