8/28/2009 - Gray Mountain - Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

We spent the morning getting caught up with laundry and just resting after a couple of bumpy days on the Alaskan Highway. We headed out in the early afternoon and started with a lunch at the Klondike Rib & Salmon BBQ.
The interior of the building was decorated with items unique to the north country.
Our waitress had to ham it up a bit for the camera.

The menu mentioned something about Klondike sized halibut fish and chips. Each piece was the size of what we would normally get in a three piece order.

After lunch, we drove up to the Gray Mountain overlook and had some wonderful views into the valley below. This first photo is to the south of the town of Whitehorse and is of the Yukon River.

This is a view of Chadburn Lake with the Yukon River in the background.

After a day of sightseeing, we returned to the campground. As we pulled in, we were surprised to see that Andy and Diane (fellow Escapees who we met at the Palmer Elks) had arrived a day early. We talked for a short while and made arrangements to have dinner the next night together.
