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….
After a failure with Dempster Highway we headed for Dawson City, feeling sad and disappointed.
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!
I finally had my long-awaited vacation. It is no surprise I decided to spend it exploring Canada in my favorite way – from the road.
