Watson Lake to Whitehorse, Monday, 2 July 2012, Day 28

Signpost Forest Watson Lake

It was cold in the tent last night the temperature has dropped considerably but I still managed to get a good nights sleep but it was hard getting out of me cosy sleeping bag into cold clothes. I am getting more efficient at breaking down my campsite but it is still a slow process and being eaten by mosquitoes does not aid the process but it does make me more efficient. I am heading back to Watson Lake info center as I had a coffee and film date with the nice lady there it turned out it was not only me but every one gets free coffee and the film was a 18 minute film on the Alaska Highway which was interesting I had a cookie  a coffee and a mars bar for breakfast whilst watching a documentary a nice slow way to start a day. I also walked around the signpost forest for a while and it was 11.30am before I hit the road.

In need of a shower!


The scenery was a bit harsher than yesterday maybe this was because the sun was not shining but it was still very interesting. Not so much wildlife today I nearly squashed a squirrel as I left the campsite and also saw a fox on the way into Watson Lake I have seen a few of these over last couple of weeks.

Before It Rained

The weather got colder and wetter as the day went on so on went the jumper and the winter glovesI  will need to think about pulling out the thermals if this continues as I was just on the edge of being comfortable if it gets colder I will need more layers.

Nice even when weather is bad


I found a hostel in Whitehorse last bed going which was I relief as I was cold and wet and smelly and dirty. I had a shower and went to the supermarket to get some dinner and something against the mossies’ I am going chemical on them even if it kills me the process.  Charging everything up as I have not had easy access to power and the net during the last couple of days and enjoying lashings of Jamaican Ginger Beer and chocolate biscuits burp! A day of the bike tomorrow I do hope it stops raining.
