Yukon and Alaska Bound, Part 42. Mayo to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.


Drive from Mayo to Whitehorse.


Dramatic sky early morning leaving 5 mile lake, Yukon.

It is the 7th of August 2014 and we break camp at 5 Mile Lake in pouring rain. It sure can rain in the Yukon when it wants to.



There was a lot of construction just outside Mayo, so we had to wait quite a bit, but the trade-off will be better roads.



Eventually we arrived at Stewart Crossing and made a quick pit-stop. Further down the road at Pelly Crossing we stopped and got another Yukon Stamp by visiting the great Johnathan Native House. Here some wonderful large painting are on exhibit.

At 5 Finger Rapids we stopped and had our packed lunch and enjoyed the views.

Once we were back on the road again, it was not long  before we arrived in Carmacks. It was still raining a bit. We fueled up, had an afternoon nap, bought an ice cream, then we were set for a few more hours on the road.

The road south is fairly good from here on to Whitehorse. We made one more pits-top at Braeburn Lodge, they have some gigantic cinnamon buns...... so good.



Once in Whitehorse we set up camp at Hi Country RV Park. It is a great park with full hook-ups. Some sites are a bit tight, but all are in good shape.



Left overs and pasta for supper. Tomorrow we will re-group and the Swiss will prepare for their trip home.
