Fogarty & Nowak Alaska Road Trip travel blog

The Alaska Highway is in much better condition than I had anticipated

Wildflowers have been abundant along the route

Stopped for lunch in this scenic little town of Teslin

Lake Teslin is 78 miles long

Great cinnamon buns at this little store along the Yukon River in...

Tired and happy to be near our days destination

Looked like a shabby place from outside but served GREAT salmon dinners.

Left Watson Lake Yukon at 8:40 -AM under gloomy and showery skies,46 degrees. Weather cleared along the way and as we neared Whitehorse became showery again. No worries about any heat as the trip so far has been comfortable in the 50s and low 60s. 19.6 hours of daylight here. Saw a black bear poking around along the roadside. Caribou and moose warning signs noted but none observed. First Nation people say "moose back in the bush"----"they told us more moose than people in Watson Lake". Definitely vast, remote and varied country. Teslin Lake was a highlight, 78 miles long, 700 ft at the deepest, almost no habitation along the shores, pristine area. Native peoples (First Nation) own and manage large areas of BC and the Yukon. We were told by local natives that they "are protecting their land". Crossed the Yukon River into Whitehorse, Yukon at 4:40PM full of cinnamon buns that seem to be popular in this north country.
