We drove up the scenic highway across the river valley from our train trip the day before. We could see the train from our vantage point. Just before crossing into Canada, we saw the historic steam train that we had taken a photo of in downtown Skagway. Got through customs without incident even though we forgot to mention the case of wine onboard.
Arrived in Whitehorse around 4pm. Checked into the High Country RV where we had reserved a site. When we drove to the site, low and behold another RV was parked there. We went into the office to talk to the young man at the counter. He was quite embarrassed and over-booked so it was quite a challenge finding us a spot. Doug’s new found backing up prowess was put to the test as he had to squeeze the rig between two trees. There was no power at the site but natch, my resident boy scout has an extra 100 feet of power cord and a 30 – 15 amp converter on board, so all is good. I had to unplug the neighbour and steal his spot to make things fit. I plugged him in below us but was afraid he might pop out of his rig guns blazing as I could have disrupted his TV. No one came out, so all was good. The kid insisted on refunding some money to us, I instead took a Whitehorse T-shirt. He was delighted and as you can imagine, I have few logoed t-shirts.
We cooked our Alaskan halibut we had been saving. It was delicious.
We raced over to the SS Klondike and took the tour. Must be Federal 150th money being spent as it was going through a massive renovation. Too bad they were behind and it won’t be ready until 2018. There was posh accommodation if you could afford it to travel to Dawson City.
