Well I now had you caught up to Tuesday June 23 and leaving Stewart Crossing. We had planned to meet Carl and Carol Anne again in Whitehorse, where we say goodbye to them and Paul and Mary. Their plans are to go home on Highway 37 through BC, and because Don and I were on a tighter schedule we were headed home on better roads, to make better time (hopefully).
We were aware that our friends from Glendon, Alberta, Janice & Jim Connelly and Melody & Charlie Kwiatkowski, would be doing the Alaska trip but not sure if we would meet them. As luck had it, they pulled into the same campground as us on Tuesday evening. It was great to see them and visit around the campfire that night, as well as have extensive coffee time on Wednesday morning.
Wednesday morning everyone except us left. We decided to spend another night in Whitehorse, allowing us to visit the small town of Atlin, BC. It was only a 2 hour drive and very worth it. The scenery and wild animals we encountered were awesome! A nice evening at our trailer, and the next morning we were on our way. At that point thoughts of home were on my mind, BUT we had to stop one more time at Liard Hot Springs. The provincial park was one of the nicest campgrounds we have been to. Only made better by the presence of the hot springs. These springs are a very natural site, not a pool, and so very hot!
Don and I really enjoyed our last days together. We stayed in Dawson Creek on Friday night, and had supper at our favorite Friday place - Boston Pizza.
