Our travels Tuesday took us to Five Fingers Recreational Park between Carmacks and Pelly Crossing along the Klondike Highway. Mary Jane, Marie and I enjoyed hiking down to the river to view more closely the rapids on the Yukon River. The trail included 223 steps on two separate places that were too steep for a regular walking trail. Since we spent the forenoon in Dawson City we only traveled 208 miles today. We set up camp here and visited with a few other travelers as they came by; some only for a brief look from the viewing platform. We made out just fine at this “dry campsite” without hook-ups since we had a full service campground the night before.

Wednesday we continued south to Whitehorse where Stanley and I are in a starbucks useing their internet. We made a few stops along the way, the most notable being the Braeburn Lodge and purchased one of the their famous cinnamon buns.
