15.09.2010 - 17.09.2010 65 °F
We arrived in Whitehorse this afternoon. The weather has been fantastic. Garry says we are traveling in the "bubble"; good weather all the way home!! Each day has been blue skies and pleasant temperatures of 65 degrees. The nights have been cool, though. This morning we woke up to 28 degrees; close to 40 degrees in the camper! Brrrrrr.
The fall colors have been spectacular. If we were a week later, the leaves would be gone.

We spent a night at Lake Louise State Park of the Glenn Highway. It is a pretty lake, but does not compare to the Lake Louise of British Columbia.
Driving to Lake Louise
The next morning we drove the scenic by-way, up to Delta Junction. We stayed the night at the Fielding State Park. There were a lot of moose hunters parked along the highway. View of Alaska Range, looking across Delta River, along Richardson highway
The next day we made a long drive through the Canadian border, on to Lake Creek campground in the Yukon. That got us halfway through the bad road. The frost heaves are pretty bad from close to the US/Canada border, for about 100 miles. We finished the frost heaves this morning, and drove on in to Whitehorse. We will stay here one night. Next WiFi will most likely be in Dawson Creek.
We did see a grizzly bear eating grass along the highway between the border and Lake Creek. He certainly wasn't afraid of us.
