Arrived in Whitehorse just after noon today. Snow!!!!! The first picture is what it was like when we got up this morning in Haines Junction. The second is what the battery boxes looked like when we arrived in Whitehorse. I had to chip the ice off of the stabilizer chain so I could undo them We got lulled by the incredible sunny weather in Dawson City. Sunny every day for the week we were there. It is supposed to warm up with rain over the next couple of days here and we will probably leave Monday, working our way east then south. Another time we would probably leave in August. We are keeping warm with the space heater and the trailer furnace.

We keep an eye on the weather in Whitehorse as we have friends up there. Saw on the Friday news that they had gotten snow.

One of the reasons for getting the TT is I'm hoping to drive out & visit them in the future. My parents had driven out (GM Van conversion) in '88 & '92. I flew out to Edmonton in '05 & rented a minivan for the rest of the trip & motelled it.

Well we made it safely back home a week ago Monday. What an incredible trip. Just under 8000km. We saw a lot of different wildlife along the way. The Buffalo were North of Liard Hot Springs. The herd was on both sides of the highway in no hurry to go anywhere. The other pictures are from our favorite National Park - Jasper - in Alberta. Just near the end of the trip we spent a couple of nights there in the Whistlers campsite. Not sure where we will plan to go next year as it would be tough to top this year's holiday.

We saw buffalo near Liard too when we drove up in '05. Did you see any horses on the road? We saw a herd of 'em standing/sleeping on the road.

Didn't see any horses on the road, but saw the caribou south of Liard then the elk in Jasper Park.
