The Sign Post Forest in Watson Lake is our first stop in the Yukon.
The first sign was placed in the early 40’s by a homesick military man. Now there are over 70,000 signs placed by tourists, often giving the mileage back to their hometown.
By night we find ourselves in the village of Teslin at the Yukon Motel. I go in and inquire about rates….thirty-one dollars for electric hookups, $15 for dry camping and free in the parking lot!
A rainbow appears behind the restaurant as I walk through the camp.
Moose statue welcomes travelers at the Yukon Motel.
Pushing on we get through Whitehorse….a real city with 75% of the Yukon’s population residing there. There are two McDonald’s! They are serving egg mcmuffins instead of sausage and biscuit, so disappointing but happy to get some protein.
The day ends at a Cottonwood RV park, our first private campground. The pictures will explain why we paid the $30 for a non electric site.
