Monday July 11, 2011

Monday morning we left our two night stay at the "dry camp" site along the Eagle Road about 8:45. We traveled back to the junction (about 3 miles) where the “Over the World Highway” begins and traveled to Dawson City in the Yukon. We made a brief stop in Boundary, Alaska with a population of 8; the owner of the only business there also claims to be the "City Mayor".  About 11:15 Alaska time we crossed into Canada; sad to leave our Alaska travels behind but good to be heading home even though we have many miles ahead of us. We made it to Dawson City about 3:40pm and spent a little time in the city before finding a camp site at Bonanza Gold R.V. Park. After getting the R.V. in place we took the car back into town to scout around. The town has a board walk so we got Stanley’s scooter out and he was able to “walk” with us. We watched three short films in the visitors center about the history of Dawson City a very rich gold mining history. We came back to the R. V. ate supper and then drove up to “The Dome” about four miles up to a park that overlooks the city and watch the sunset; we stay until about 11:30 took some pictures and returned to the R.V. it still wasn’t dark.
