Our contribution

Long drive up from Fort Nelson to Watson Lake. Some long patches of construction (chip and seal) made it a very slow and dusty drive. Also, now have a small crack on the Escape's windshield. As long as it lasts till we get home.

Saw lots of wildlife along the way... 12 black bear, a moose, 2 herds of mountain sheep and 2 herds of bison (one being quite large). Along with the scenery, it made for an interesting drive, well worth doing.

The price of gas in Contact Creek, Yukon was quite a bit cheaper that Fort Nelson at $1.36.9 a litre.

We're here for a couple of days R and R before heading to Whitehorse.

Made our contribution to the Sign Post Forest today. Started by a homesick GI in 1942, now there are over 77,000 signs.

We went out to the airport to see where Sue's grandfather was stationed during WWII. There is a small exhibit in the main terminal building regarding the Lend Lease Program with the RCAF, Russia and USAF. Checking out the Northern Lights Center after lunch.
