We continued north from Dawson Creek stopping to camp, walk, relax and have dinner about every 200 miles.

From Ft Nelson at milepost 283 to Whitehorse mile 900 every gas station, campground, motel, lodge and restaurant has to run its own generator. One campground shuts the generator at 10 PM and another told me it costs $4000 a week to run the generator. I guess they make it up selling gas and home made cinnamon buns to the hoards of senior citizens heading north.

The second night out from Dawson Creek we began seeing wildlife.

Our third night out was spent at Laird Hot Springs. A British Columbia Provincial Park with a natural 102 degree hot spring, a real treat for our weary bones.

I know it's hard to see but there was a Moose watching the swimmers and when we left we saw bison and a bear.


The scenery along the road was superb we stopped and took a short walk to a river overlook.

When we got to the campground we walked for a mile or so along the river bank. In addition to the campground and a restaurant there was a motel at this location as well. The facilities at the motel were outside. Luckily our trailer is self contained and the sites had water, sewer and electricity. The electricity was provided by the 3 generators you see in the pictures.


We also stopped to visit the Tlingit Indian Heritage Center. Masks are big in their culture as are canoes.

Do you think their ancestors made the canoes this way.

Although Whitehorse the capital of the Yukon Territory is only a hundred miles or so from Teslin it's not close enough to commute and so Teslin's High School students go to public boarding school in Whitehorse.
