Whitehorse to Pelly Crossing and onto Dawson City

Pelly Crossing Campground
Free, on the Pelly River
Dry Camp, good level sites
Sunny skies and rain at campground

6/1/14 - Arrive in Dawson City which will be on next blot.

The road from Whitehorse to Pelly Crossing became rough and many pot holes and then suddenly smooth.  We just had to slow down a bit, but other than that a beautiful drive.  Some different type of scenery, more hills. We found this really nice town park that had about 30 defined sites and you could easily fit in another 30.  Across the street is the Selkirk Heritage Center, which was the best small Heritage Center I have ever been to.  Items were from their own area with many pictures all displayed exceptionally well.  I would highly recommend a stop at this Heritage Center.  They ask that you do not take pictures.

Klondike River

There were about 55 Road Houses
from Whitehorse to Dawson that 
serviced the Stagecoach 

This was a two story one and appears to have been very well built.

Inside, the opening in the middle was the front door with large windows on each side.

This shows the front door

A new bridge going in

Pelly Crossing, this is just butterflies along the Pelly River bank at our campground

Pelly River and bridge that we went across the next morning.

Looking back down at the Pelly River and if you look real hard you can see the bridge.  This was quite the hill we came up after leaving our campground

Gravel Lake, famous spot for migrating birds.

Just clouds, I underexposed this because of looking into the sun.

We are in Dawson City in a nice gravel RV park in town, can walk to most things. We have good internet here which surprises me, You get 2 hrs free in the morning and then 8 hrs later you get two more hours free. What a deal!

Bye for now, drive safe and have a blessed day
