Today started out pretty nice. The temperature was in the high 50’s with scattered clouds.

I left Baby Nugget RV Park at 07:55AM. I saw one lone black bear today about 25 miles north of the RV Park and that was it for wildlife.

I crossed the Continental Divide on the Alaska Highway at 09:30AM – 72 miles from the RV Park.

I stopped at Swan Lake at 09:55AM and took a few pictures. There was a light rain from just north of Swan Lake until just south of Whitehorse.

I stopped at the turnout at Teslin at 10:55AM for pictures of the Teslin Bridge. My next stop was at Johnson’s Crossing for 25 minutes at 11:40AM for one of their cinnamon rolls and a coffee.

I arrived at Hi Country RV Park at 13:35PM. A lot of trees but from site 76 where I am, I am able to get a good signal for my DirecTV. Free Wi-Fi but very weak at site; however, they have a computer room in the store that should be much better.

After getting set up I washed the SUV and drove into Whitehorse. I got a good picture of a bald eagle just south of town and a picture of the SS Klondike. I stopped at the Visitor Information Center and received a “Whitehorse” pin and a free three-day parking pass. I drove by the Transportation Museum and took pictures of the DC 3 Weather Vane and a US Army vehicle used in building the Alaska Highway.

254.9 RV miles today. 5 hours and 15 minutes driving time.

22.4 SUV miles today.
