6:30am Good Morning!
7:00am Family is up and ready to go to breakfast.
7:30am Breakfast with our wonderful Swiss B&B hosts.
8:00am Checked out the signpost forest across the road from the gas station that we filled-up the car at.
8:15am On the road again still heading NW.
9:30am Stop at a spot with an easy hike to a pair of waterfalls. Am glad to actually get out of the car and walk for a little bit even if it wasn’t at all a challenging hike. As out of shape as I am that’s really saying something.
Soundtrack for the morning: Lime and Violet podcasts,
11:30am Stop for lunch at a pretty campsite and rest stop on the edge of Teslin Lake. I walked down to the edge of the lake and looked around for a few minutes.
2:30pm Get to Whitehorse. Try to find a brewery that was advertised as being there. Were unable to thus causing a fracas in the car resulting in me driving the rest of the day. Again.
4:30pm Get to Kluane lake. Amazingly blue water.
5:30pm Arrive in Destruction Bay, Yukon Territory. This is where we are spending the night. Have dinner. Get most if not all of the chill cheese burger on my face and hands. Anyone who has ever watched me eat a sub will understand the totality of the mess that I created. Make waitress chuckle at the mess that I have created of myself. However, manage not to get any on clothes which is a major plus. That, and the food was good!
7:00pm Am sitting in the laundromat washing 2 loads of clothes. I hate hauling around dirty clothes and this is as good of a place to do them as any. Especially since I have good internet.
8:00pm Holy crap, I think I just saw a wolf! I took a walk down by the lake and there was a pond caused by the lake being cut off by a gravel bar. I saw an animal by the edge of the water and assumed it was a deer of some sort initially. Finally it heard me since I was completely down-wind from it. It then perked-up it’s ears and really looked at me. The way that it did that suddenly made me realize that it was definitely not a deer or caribou or anything of that nature. I stared at it for a minute before I finally realized that maybe, just maybe, I should take a picture of it. By the time that I got my camera out it had turned to walk away. I got a few snaps of it but it is hard to tell with out trying to zoom in on it a lot (which I don’t really know how to do). However, when I came back to the hotel, I asked the guy at the front desk if there were wolves in the area and his reply was, “Oh yeah, sometimes you’ll see them down by the water”. And no folks, I had not had my scotch for the night yet.
