Nolan and I left before the rest of the group to go fill up with gas and buy a few groceries at Walmart. The plan was to meet at Walmart. I'm fuzzy NOW as to why we left early - but I know that it allowed for more efficient use of our travel time.
The only flaw in our plan was we didn't have a GPS. We stopped at the Klondike Visitor Center, snapped a few photos and headed for gas and Walmart. Note - get gas before leaving Whitefish.
We were APPALLED at the RVers at Whitefish Walmart. I don't know if this is correct etiquette for wally-docking in Canada but it isn't in America. They had slides out, jacks down (bad for parking lots), trash, sitting around in chairs outside their rvs.....they'd taken over the parking lot really.
Today, we drove through the Kluane Icefield Ranges and Desperation Bay, on our way to our campground outside of Beaver Creek. Beaver Creek is the westernmost town in Canada. We will shortly be in Alaska.
On the road again....
I was GLAD when Michael had to stop at this rest area 99 miles outside of Whitefish. STUNNING views! In the Milepost this spot is located on page 200 at DC 976.9/DJ 412.1. GREAT spot to stop. Michael loves to grab his camera from me when we stop. I know he'd love to be a passenger taking photos - but he enjoys driving too.

The trailer is getting bounced around a lot - wondering how our things are traveling.
Our stop for the evening was at Discovery Yukon - a quirky campground with some of the friendliest hosts to date. It's about 30 miles before Beaver Creek if you're traveling north. In the middle of no-where; we were lucky to get the big spot that borders an air strip...... The only bummer of the day was not seeing wildlife (other than squirrels) and the motorhome steps stopped working! That's quite a jump!

We are all struggling with sunlight at midnight and rising at 0300....but we're playing lots of games.
