Snag Lake to Kluane Lake area, Yukon

We left Beaver Creek late in the afternoon on June 22 planning to stay the night at the Snag Junction campground about a half hour south of Beaver Creek. The campground was busy so we headed down a nearby side road that we had explored a couple of days before.

Woke to a rainy, overcast day. The wind had settled though.

Within a few minutes of driving there was a cow moose and calf seen beside a lake.

As we crossed the White River bridge I looked up the river. There was another cow with calf!
The cow and her calf are barely visible in the picture below.

I got a another photo of a moose by the Alaska Highway.

Then very soon another one, a bull this time and another photo taken through the window.

Then there were a couple of bulls making a quick exit!

The rainy cool day may have been the reason for the moose-sightings, with a total of 8 moose between Snag and Donjek River!

As we approached the Donjek River, I had mixed feelings about the new river bridge.
Yes, it looks good, but I miss the old bridge that was there in the 1960s!

We arrived at the Congdon Creek campground alongside Kluane Lake in the early afternoon. 
After unhooking the trailer, we drove further for some exploring.

First, we headed south through the construction area north of the Slim's River bridge.

And ventured to another of our favourite spots, Silver City...
