We decided to take advantage of the RV wash and get the 5th wheel clean before we left this morning. for Whitehorse, YK. You know the saying “if you want it to rain – wash your vehicle”, well it’s true up North also. You guessed it, not more than 20 miles down the road it started raining. It rained on and off all morning and a long stretch of the road was under construction – which means dirt. Both the truck and 5th wheel are filthy dirty. Oh well, they needed the rain! More beautiful mountains, rivers and lakes between Watson Lake and Whitehorse. The only wildlife we saw was a fox and some eagles - We are still waiting to see our first caribou (we keep seeing signs that say “watch for caribou on road”.

In Teslin we stopped at the Tlingit Culture Centre, which has displays on the lifestyle of the Tlingit people and the “power of the mask”. They had some totems out front, displays of masks, clothing, and a couple of native canoes.

We also drove by Teslin Lake which straddles the BC-YT border. It is 86 miles long and averages 2 miles wide and an average depth of 194 feet. It was a beautiful lake but the smoke and overcast weather didn’t allow for a good picture.
