19 August (Whitehorse, Yukon)

19 August – Left Destruction Bay and drove to Whitehorse, Yukon (Hi-Country RV Park). We stayed at this campground on our way up the Alaskan Hwy. We’ll stay here 2 nights so as to get in a day trip to Skagway, AK. That will be the end of our travels in Alaska. Then, we have probably another 6-7 days in Canada before getting back to the lower 48 states. We complain about the roads in Canada, but the scenery is fabulous. The Aspen trees have turned a bright yellow since we first came through the Yukon. It looks like fall weather is coming in fast. It’s probably time for us to be heading south!

Today, we saw a bald eagle sitting in a spruce tree along the road, plus approximately 6 open-range horses grazing along the road. We had been told we would probably see Dall Sheep coming down the mountain to lower areas with their young, but we saw none today–maybe tomorrow, on our way to Skagway. Our host told us about a bakery just past Haines Junction (Village Bakery), so we made a stop. We bought cherry and apple strudel, huge cookies (PB, Choc Chip and Ginger Snaps), and danish. Yummy!!
