We woke up late and made a nice egg and bagel breakfast. It was a chilly morning so we made a campfire in our site overlooking Squanga Lake. We decided to get a little exercise so we ran/walked up and down the hill several times from the boat dock (where Rachel sunk into the quicksand) to the entry gate. It was noon by the time we were back on the Alaska Highway headed north. We stopped in Whitehorse (capital of Yukon Territory) for fuel and to dump our holding tanks. It was overcast with intermittent rain showers. When we left Whitehorse we decided to take the Klondike toward Dawson City. This route follows the Yukon River. There were several interesting stops along the way including, the Montague House (historic road house dating back to the stage coach days) and Five Finger Rapids. We also crossed the Yukon River at Carmacks. This bridge was under rehabilitation and the road was very narrow and only one way. We managed to cross without hitting the bridge railing somehow. We ended up stopping to camp at Moose Creek (Yukon) and were very tired. We had a small dinner and took showers with the little water we had left in the tank. We are looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July in Tok, Alaska!
