Day 6. Dawson City, YT – Big Creek Government Campground, YT, 907 km. We left Dawson early morning and headed back. This day we were backtracking the way we arrived – Klondike Highway to Whitehorse, then follow Alaska Highway. But instead of going back to Vancouver the same way, we decided to make a detour via Alberta! We made it almost to the junction with Stewart-Cassiar Highway, the place where we joined the Alaska highway just a few days ago….
Day 3. Mezadin Lake Provincial Park – Tagish, Yukon. 924 km The night was cold in the really windy. But I have used a little trick that I’ve learned from more experienced travelers. If you put a car between the wind and your tent, it will create a wind shadow for your tent, and the wind will not bother you as much. And it really saved my night. I slept like a baby!
This was supposed to be a very special trip for me. First, I have been dreaming about traveling North for many years. Second, I took my vacation during my dad’s visit. I have not seen him since I moved to Canada two years ago. Is there a better way to spend time with your dad, who is just as passionate about traveling by car as me, than taking a two-week trip together to some of the world’s most amazing places?
Have you ever seen a car doing 420 km/h (263 mph)? I just had this chance. I could never imagine that something could move that fast! And that loud!
What could be worse place to look for a provincial park then near a sewage treatment plant? But in Vancouver it is possible!
Vancouver has unique mix of cultures from around the world. You can easily experience Europe, Asia, America, anything. Today I wanted to immerse into something new. I have never been to Japan, but Vancouver allows to experience a tiny bit of it, but what a bit it is!
Yes, cars again in my blog. Well, actually trucks. This rainy Saturday I decided to visit British Columbia Vintage Truck Museum, located in Surrey, BC.
I love cars. It is ultimate freedom provider. I could not miss an opportunity to enjoy car fest and visited Vancouver International Auto Show. Here is what I have seen.
The spring is coming closer and closer. And it means that hiking season is not that far away now! Just about the right time to start getting into shape and start getting a taste of beauties in Beautiful British Columbia.
Vancouver have been blessed with geographical location. It is a Canada’s gateway to Pacific, with business and trade flowing through it. But for a regular citizen, what is more important, probably, is that the location is just incredibly beautiful, with so many places to go and things to see. Beaches, mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes – almost anything you can wish for is just a short drive from the city.
