Yukon and Alaska Bound, Part 11 - Boya Lake, BC to Whitehorse, Yukon



Road trip from Boya Lake BC to Whitehorse Yukon.



Coffee with Johanna and Herman
When we woke up on the 28th of June we had a note on the door from some friends from Victoria. 



Johanna and Herman. We wandered over to their site and had a nice cup of coffee and a morning chat.



They are camped over in site number 17. This is another very nice camp site.




Forest fire went through here

Another Black Bear crosses the road.

Crossing the border in to Yukon

Wonderful Countryside

$173.9 per liter

At Yukon Motel and RV Park

The Yukon River
Soon we were on the road again direction North on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. The road from Boya Lake to the Alaska Highway is real bumpy and rough.


Our plans were to stay at Nugget City. However we arrived early and decided to continue. 


We stopped at Rancheria for Diesel and a Reuben Sandwich. 


The fuel was expensive at $1.73 per liter, but the sandwich was OK. 


The place does look pretty run down though.

This part of the Alaska Highway  is beautiful to drive, with wide valleys, mountains and lakes. 


We stopped for the famous Cinnamon buns at the Yukon Motel and RV Park at km 1243.5.  If you stop there, the Strawberry-Rhubarb pie is to die for.


Great food here and the RV Park looks really nice. Might just stay here on our way back.


We soon arrived at the Caribou RV Park, 15 minutes east of the town  of Whitehorse.  Martin a Swiss fellow owns it and runs it together with an Australian women.


The sites are a bit tight and only power and water but they have a sani dump. 


The showers, washrooms and laundry are super clean. Showers are free, and washing and drying laundry is $5.00 total.


There is also a car wash on the property which comes in handy.


Right next door is a Swiss Restaurant called the Wolfs Den. 


Fantastic food! Liz had Schnitzel and I had a T Bone steak. Great!


Tomorrow we will visit the city of Whitehorse itself.
