Today we didn’t cover as many miles but got to take in more sites. We had no problems sleeping at the waterfalls and hit the road this morning after doggy breakfast and insulin.
We continued north to Tesslin and crossed the largest bridge span on the Alaska hwy
We had elk sausage and eggs for breakfast at the Yukon Motel before checking out their awesome display of taxidermy animals.
We then headed over to the George Johnston museum and all his amazing photos. He also brought the first car to the area 13 years before the Alaska hwy was built.
We then took the girls for a walk along the George Johnston trail and had a feast on wild strawberries
Then it was time to check out the Tlingit Heritage Centre. Although we were early in the season it was nice to talk with a lady who does amazing bead work and enjoy some fry bread.
The grounds are quite large and I’m guessing they have lots of things going on in high season.
We then continued north through Johnson’s Crossing
And then over to Carcross. Although the shops were all closed it was better than being surrounded by tourists. I could only imagine what a tourist trap it is in high season.
And then Emerald Lake. It was overcast I’m guessing on a sunny day the water is even more stunning.
Next stop was Robinson Roadhouse rest area to feed the girls and give Huuna her insulin. It was by far my favorite spot of the day. A short trail lead to a field full of wild flowers and derelict old buildings.
Tonight we are parked amongst the big rigs. At The Caribou RV Park.
I should have asked for a dry site as they are much nicer but it’s good to plug the cooler in. However the campground is great. With free hot showers, nice walking trails, laundromat,a dish washing station and a great day use cabin.
Wildlife sightings: 3 bunnies, 7 squirrels (but I think we ran one over 😔) and 2 bunny size beige UIC (un-identified creatures) that were standing on their hind legs looking around but dove into the same hole as we approached.
