Lookie what we saw today! We have determined that there are more bears in Canada than in Alaska. Mom and her three cubs were out for a stroll along the highway.
We traveled the road between Whitehorse and Watson Lake today, party cloudy and no rain. Beautiful scenery and more traffic than we have seen thus far. We are staying in an RV park just outside of Watson Lake and there is a group of 27 motor homes all traveling together – must be why we saw more folks on the road today.
We crossed the Continental Divide today. The rivers on the eastern side empty into the Arctic ocean and the rivers on the western side empty into the Bering Sea. The black spruce really stand out right now with their unusual shape and color.
The people we meet in the RV parks have been talking about how they have seen the northern lights. We have managed to not be in the right place at the right time but tonight is looking better for us to see the lights. It is a bit cloudy but not solid clouds so I think we will set an alarm and check the sky about midnight. We will let you know tomorrow!
