This blog entry will be brief because we have limited Internet access. We had planned to stay in Teslin with a water/electric hookup for about $19, as our friends Jan & Ken Tilton paid when they stayed there a couple of weeks ago. When we stopped around lunchtime, Dennis reported that the rate is now $28! We ate lunch in the restaurant, regrouped and decided to head on down the road a little further.
Dennis found a nice large pull-out with plenty of room for our 6 rigs, without impeding other travelers.
It rained on and off all day, and we changed positions a few times in our ‘loosey-goosey’ caravan. At one point, the three Tiffins (Forbes, Olsons and us) were traveling together. Later, we followed Jean and Claudette, with Jim and Pat in front of them while Dennis and Carol led the pack (not visible in this pic).
The scenery was gorgeous, with snow-capped mountains receiving even more snow, and lakes, streams and rivers appearing beside the road, frequently still icy because of a late thaw.
We saw another black bear just after crossing the Continental Divide, but weren’t able to get the camera ready fast enough for a picture.
Our group decided to go to Skagway tomorrow instead of Whitehorse. We are a little ahead of the ‘plans set in Jello’ for reaching Tok, Alaska, where several of us expect to receive our mail around June 1. And the weather isn’t conducive for driving over Top Of The Mountain Road right now, as some of us planned. So, we’ll shake the Jello, change plans and go see Skagway now instead of later.
