Day 10 July 15 Whitehorse

I fell in love with the Yukon today. It is a magnificent land with a mythical story of Klondike Gold and a legendary river with the longest salmon run in North America. We walked in the rain, viewed the fish ladder in wet jackets, hid from the storm in a great museum, drank perfect cappuccinos, toured a brewery, sampled great beer, walked the downtown shops, hiked in the afternoon sun along the mighty Yukon, did piles of laundry at 5 bucks a load to wash and dry, swept and wiped and shook and polished the MoHo, and it’s still broad daylight at 9:30pm.  I am just tooo tired to even think about blogging, but we are going off the grid now for a few days as we travel north to Dawson and the Top of the World Highway.  Stay tuned.  I think this is what my blogging friend Erin calls a “teaser”.

And to the commenter who asked: Abby is a rescue dog, we think Cocker Spaniel and Blue Heeler Cow Dog

Days driven today in the MoHo: ZERO

  1. Hurry back! I looked for you today on Google Earth. That's some highway alright, but didn't see the MoHo. :))

    Can you imagine what those gold rushers were up against on their trip? I don't know that we can stretch our minds around that very well. The old stories are sure interesting, though, aren't they?


  2. Beautiful photo. I have been somewhat disappointed by the pictures some of the other Alaskan bound bloggers have posted. It seems all days have been cloudy and dull looking. Its great to see the sun and blue sky!


  3. Yep, truly a great header photo for sure. Great job:)) If your off the grid for a few days maybe you can keep an eye out for Sam McGee. I hear he was cremated up there somewhere. According to a fellow by the name of Robert Service anyway……..
