Kluane Lake to Beaver Creek YT on the Alaska Highway

Friday 20 June 2008

Leaving the Kathleen Lake campground, we turned towards Haines Junction. 

It seemed blue skies were not the theme for this year's trip!
I looked forward touring through my favourite area of the Yukon -- Kluane Lake.

North of Destruction Bay and Burwash Landing the road is a slow-go for folk pulling a trailer. We looked forward to construction zones, as the road became smoother even though it was gravel.

We arrived in Beaver Creek in mid-afternoon.

Most westerly community in Canada!

After parking in the Westmark RV Park, we rode our bicycles to explore the area.
When I was a kid, I often hiked up Red Hill north of town. The view is worth the climb.

Then we returned to town to wrap up the evening.
We attended the great dinner show at the Westmark Inn.
