Ross River to Simpson Lake - Campbell Highway, Yukon

10 September 2007

Our goal was to reach the Frances Lake government campground at km 171.5.
We had stayed at this campground in 1996 and wanted to see it again.

We stayed in the same site we had in 1996. Lovely site overlooking the lake.

I picked cranberries while my husband was fishing.
He caught a good fish that we enjoyed for dinner.

Watson Lake has a grocery shopping opportunity. I asked locals about Nahanni Range Road and they indicated we would have no problems towing our fifth wheel.
One said, "It's only them outsiders that cause problems up there."

We left Watson Lake to go to Simpson Lake government campground (km 81).

The lake stayed quiet in the evening with some subtle colours in the sky.

The campground stayed quiet for the night. Nice spot to stay!
