Thurs Aug 18 Day 4 Fox Lake territorial park 722 kms trip total 2554 kms

Started with the fog and 11 C but it turns out into a beautiful day. We even spot a moose crossing the road. The Cassiar is a bit better today, but still no yellow line divider, driving takes focus.

At 2054 km from Victoria, we reach the Yukon border and soon join the Alaska highway. Still Internet dead zone until Teslin, and then again until Whitehorse. Just after Teslin, we see a grizzly cub on the side of the highway, but no Mama bear. In Whitehorse, we top up the groceries as there will be very little from here on but we basically keep going. The miles add on.

We tried camping at Lake Laberge territorial park where Robert Service is said to have composed the Cremation of Sam McGee, but it was full. So on to Fox Lake, just a little further North, beautiful campsite with the sun setting on the lake. Mini is happy, there is a Chihuahua next door, better than the huge vicious Dalmatian who broke his leash to attack her this morning.
