Today's drive was mostly sunny - just a few sprinkles. The area we drove thru has over 400 bison roaming freely. We saw one group of 15, including calves, & a total of 22.
We stopped at Liard Hot Springs to soak for awhile. This was a construction center duing the building of the Alaska Hwy & it was considered paradise because of the hot springs - especially during the cold winter. The workers built the original boardwalk to the sprngs.
Heading on down the road we saw more trees & mountains - the views are spectacular. We also saw 7 bear & a cow moose. We saw the moose in the middle of a highway resurfacing project as we were following a pilot car! Guess all the activity of construction doesn't bother the wildlife up here.
We entered Yukon Territory just a few miles outside Watson Lake. We're in the Downtown RV Park, which is just a gravel parking lot with hookups. But we can walk to everything in town from here. We're planing to spend a couple of nights since there are a few things here we want to see.
Critter Count: Bear - 7 (16) - Moose - 1 (2) - Bison - 22
