Boya Lake on the Cassiar Highway in British Columbia to
Teslin on the Alaska Highway in Yukon

Wednesday 18 June 2008

This morning was bright and clear. We hiked the trail at the south end of the Boya Lake campground near the boat launch. The trail is easy walking. Near the end of the trail, there's a large beaver dam.

After the beaver dam the trail gets damper as it follows the channel between the two lakes.

A small viewing platform is at the end of the trail. Last night we canoed by this spot.

We got onto the Cassiar Highway to drive to the Yukon border a couple of hours north of Boya Lake.

The road was rough for about 30 km (20 miles) south of the border and we looked forward to seeing the border sign as it meant we were only a few miles from the Alaska Highway.

The Alaska Highway provides for expansive views of the mountains and highway.

Rancheria Falls recreation site was a good spot for lunch and a short hike and dog walk. The parking area is large and provides an easy turnaround for truck and fifth wheel.

The weather remained overcast with heavy rain. Teslin was enjoying a massive downpour when we arrived. We decided to overnight at the Yukon Motel & RV Park in Teslin that is along the lakeshore. We also visited the wildlife museum beside the RV park. Admittance was free and the displays were wonderful! It was a good RV park that offered a good gasoline discount for people staying the night.
