Overlooking Lake Kluane

Such awesome views from our RV window!

Once again we left in the pouring rain as we continued up the Alcan. It made us really appreciate the blue skies that were over Lake Kluane when we arrived at 3pm. We walked up the mountain to Soldier’s Summit where the Alcan ribbon cutting took place in Nov., 1942. It’s worth the stop to listen to the audio on the mountain top as you gaze back toward the bright blue waters of the immense lake. What a sight! We moved on just a few miles to camp on the lake at Congdon, a Yukon government campground right on the water with views of the high peaks of the Kluane Range just a short distance away. Steve caught his first grayling this evening! We still marvel at how much daylight there is at 3am! Tomorrow – ALASKA!
