Teslin, YT to Whitehorse, YT


We headed north following Teslin Lake to our west for quite a distance.


We heard so much about Mukluk Annie’s Salmon Bake prior to our trip in 2009.  Sadly, it was closed then and still is today.



After a couple of hours on the road, we approached the Yukon River Bridge about 15 miles before our final destination of Pioneer RV Park in Whitehorse, YT.



As we drove into Pioneer RV Park, there was a sign at the driving indicating they were closed.  We continued on and parked by the office.  Soon, the owner drove up on her golf cart and told us if we could do without a water hookup we were welcome to stay there.  She had a place where we could fill our water tank, so we decided to stay a couple of nights so we could do some additional sightseeing in the area.  We ate lunch while filling our tank, and when that was completed found a site and set up for our stay.  Later in the afternoon, we drove into town and got this photo of the iced up Yukon River.



There were no wildlife sightings today.  Hopefully tomorrow we’ll see more caribou as we plan to drive a portion of the Atlin – Tagish – Carcross Scenic Loop.
