Aug 12, 2018 - Muncho Lake Provincial Park

Spent a day at fabulous Muncho Lake. It is an awesome place. The lake is pristine. The color was almost turquoise and was very clear and clean. Did some kayaking and the water was so calm it was like a reflection mirror. Then we went for an incredible hike up a nearby mountain and although it was very steep, the vista from the summit was breathtakingly beautiful. We finished the day with an awesome salmon and steak BBQ followed by a bike ride.

May 30, 2017 - Stunning drive and lots of wildlife

Drove from Fort st. John all the way to muncho Lake. There were beautiful vistas and huge mountains. Mom got excited when she saw our first black bear 1 of 6 as the day went on. Check out the pictures, we saw caribou, stone sheep, and several Bull moose. It was cool. Muncho Lake is Glacier blue and so cold, we ran up the Mountainside played in the creek and swam in the lake. Then had spuds and onions with sausage for dinner.

Jun 27, 2015 - Muncho Lake, BC Canada

Muncho Lake, BC-Mile 462 of the Alaskan Highway Muncho Lake (Muncho means big in the Kaska language) is 7.5 miles in length and a deep blue green due to copper oxide leaching into the lake. It’s also one of the largest natural lakes in the Canadian Rockies. Record lake trout is 50 lbs!! The 2 yellow and blue pontoon planes sitting at the edge of the lake contrasted nicely with the mountains surrounding the lake.

Alaska Trip 2015

Jun 9, 2015 - Muncho Lake

2 days on this beautiful lake, soaking up the views, reading and just trying to take it all in. Using the wifi signals when is available is so slow uploading pictures that I am not taking time to share my personal views. Maybe when we get to Alaska and I get a Verizon signal, things will change. Not promising.

Dream On

Jun 14, 2014 - June 11 st Tesla River Services and Campground

Arrived last night and had supper here, cooked by the owner. This morning I saw a fly fishing party going out shortly after 7. We got up at 5:30 and got on the road by 8am. The highway here and from some distance back is a rough asphalt surface - more shot and chipped - and hard on tires, says Paul. Flutie did not like the resident dog, a cute Australian cattle dog. Today we are driving thru the mountains to Liard River Hot Springs and are seing lots of snow covered peaks. The temperature at 8:40 is 49 dgrees. Summit Lake is the highest...

To Alaska and Back

Jun 7, 2014 - Muncho Lake

Sat., June 7th – From here the road becomes rather windy as you make your way to the top at Summit Lake. Keeping your eyes on the road is a challenge when you’re criss-crossing the glacial waters of the rivers and creeks and gazing out at the most incredible scenery that leads to Muncho Lake. We found two sites in Strawberry Flats, a Provincial Park campground, right on the banks of the emerald green lake with the tall, snow-covered mountain peaks bordering the west side. We plan to spend 2 nights here. Sun. June 8th – At 2:30am Steve got...

Aug 13, 2013 - Whitehorse to Muncho Lake BC

Today started off like many of the rest. We packed up our camping gear, plopped on our helmets, and went out for breakfast. After our first Timmies’ coffee since we were in Prince George (about two weeks ago), we set out going south along the Alaska Highway. Even though we had done the road between Whitehorse and Watson Lake before but we saw it in a new light today, we were awe struck by the mountains and the lakes. We are becoming more and more impressed with what the territory has to offer. The day passed rather quickly and before we...

Alaska Bound 2013

Jun 26, 2013 - Muncho Lake, BC

Coal River Motel and RV Park was really excellent for one night. We didn’t have to unhook which was good because it rained. There were more buffalo on the road, even crossing right in front of us. It was a 2 hour drive to Muncho Lake and we were so looking forward to staying at Strawberry Flats again. There was no one there when we arrived so again we had our choice. What we didn’t choose was the weather, rain and clouds and cold. Somehow Muncho lost some of its former attraction. The mosquitoes were awful. And to top it all off, there was...

Jun 8, 2013 - Fort Nelson to Muncho Lake

We thoroughly enjoyed our drive today. About 90 minutes up the road we stopped at Tetsa River Services for their "world famous cinnamon buns (said by thousands to be the best they ever had." They were big & they were good - but there would have been a little less cinnamon to be perfect. We drove thru the Stone Mountain range & by Summit Lake. Milepost said to watch for Stone sheep & caribou. A motorhome was stopped to look at a Stone sheep but all we saw was its tail as it disappeared over the bank of a creek. So we passed the motorhome & a...

Jun 6, 2013 - Mile 437 - Muncho Lake

Another nice, sunny day but a bit cold. We drove west to Muncho Lake. The Alaska highway at this point is very hilly. There were patches of snow along the side of the road in a few places. We could see the Rocky Mountains in the distance. I think it is going to be a cold night. There are no towns along this stretch of the highway until we got to Muncho Lake and it is not much of a town either. Just a few hotels, gas stations, and campgrounds. There are three places named Muncho Lake as follows: Muncho Lake Provincial Park, Muncho Lake,...

Find Tom 6

Jun 20, 2012 - Made It

Well after 4,777 miles and 17 days on the road we are here. We arrived about mid morning at the home of Ellie VandeVisse. Tonight is a solstice celebration in Eagle River and on Friday night there is a memorial service for a friend of Jean's who passed last winter. AND we have Wifi available again. However, I am very disappointed in this iPad and very sorry we spent the money on it. To catch up: 6/14 Thursday. The purple Lupine, red Fireweed, magenta Indian Paintbrush and yellow dandelions make for a colorful roadside palette....

Jun 14, 2012 - Muncho Lake

On Friday, June 8, we left Fort Nelson and continued north on the Alaska Highway and ended our drive 140 miles later at Muncho Lake. A short distance but it might have been another planet, it was so different. Today we really started to drive through the beautiful Canadian Rockies and saw some more fast running rivers that are forming some fascinating terrain with their multiple river beds that are strewn with large boulders and with islands of Spruce trees growing in the middle. It seems like the rivers keep the highway department busy...
