Sign Post Forest - Planted, May 2011

Day: 13 Miles: 350 Total Miles: 3306

Start: Boya Lake, BC Stop: Whitehorse, YT

Campground: Hi Country RV Park

The Cassiar Highway ends at the junction with the Alaska Highway, about 11 miles west of Watson Lake, YT. After about 400 miles on the Cassiar, we are ready for a change. We had a steady rain all night last night, but the sun was shining early this morning with a beautiful view of Boya Lake. We had a nice breakfast at Watson Lake and then moved across the street to the Sign Post Forest to look for our sign that we “planted” in 2011. It only took us about 5 minutes to find our NASA JSC sign and get our selfies. With all of the thousands of signs, we found our 7 year old sign. Continuing along the Alaska Highway, we saw 2 caribou crossing the road, and later in the afternoon a lone black bear along the side of the road. Arriving in Whitehorse, we checked in to the RV park, found a grocery, drove through town and settled in for the night. Weather forecast is for 35 deg tonight. We are going to suffer when we get home. Just a note about days this far north: sunrise: 0456, sunset: 2257.
