Yukon and Alaska Bound, Part 7 - Meziadin to Dease Lake


Meziadin to Dease Lake


The storm is coming in around the bend

Wet and loud!
Last night a thunder storm all of a sudden blew in over the lake.


I had the hamburgers cooking over the coals on the fire and we managed to put everything away before it hit.


And hard it hit, rain was coming down in buckets. The lighting flashed through the sky and thunder echoed through out the mountains. Exciting (Liz does not agree). It lasted about 20 minutes.


We packed up in the morning and realized some water had come in by the back window. This will require further inspection.


Once on the road we drove towards Dease Lake it was some fog and mainly overcast so we did not see all the vistas.


We drove again an are that is very sparsely populated.

On the road again!

Logging trucks come very frequently.
Along the highway is a new transmission line being constructed and is providing lots of jobs.


We arrived early in Dease Lake and checked in at Dease Lake RV Park.


We booked for two nights. Good location but the park looks a bit tired. The park is for sale.


Good drive through sites with full hook ups. The Wi-Fi is weak so bring your Wi-Fi booster.


When we got all set up, Liz started a few loads of laundry and I investigated the water leak. It looks like it came from around the window and the caulking was cracked there so I filled in some new stuff and it seems to be fine now.


The parks offer a pay per use high pressure wash. It works good, but no hot water or soap. Sure get's the dust off though.

We walked over to the store and it is run by the Tahltan First Nation's People. It is called the Stikine Region.

Tomorrow we are planning to take the truck and go to Telegraph Creek.
