Jun 21, 2011 - Johnsons Crossing, Yukon

We started our celebration of the solstice with a morning wildlife excursion. We saw a Black Bear and four common loons in the morning and heard a grey owl hooting in the morning. We took a quick trip into Watson Lake and checked out the Street Sign Park, which has over 5000 signs and license plates from across the world. After breaking camp we headed west on the Alaskan Highway spotting a black bear not far from our camp. The bear was grassing on dandelions and other vegetation. We stopped for the evening at Johnsons Crossing (a historic...

Jun 9, 2011 - Johnsons Crossing, YT - Crossing the Continental Divide (again)

(Ron Writing) After getting to bed very late last night due to our mosquito problem we slept-in this morning and it was late morning before we were back on the road. Today’s drive west on the Alcan was through beautiful forested land with nice views of the Cassiar Mountains. At Swift River the highway dipped south back into British Columbia for several miles before heading back north into Yukon at Morley River. Soon after crossing the Rancheria River Valley we crossed the Continental Divide. We usually think of the Continental Divide being...

We spent a night at Johnson's Crossing. Everybody but me spent the time fishing. I basically just hung out at the trailer. Not much to report. Mike caught a big Northern, Murray caught some Grayling. They had a late dinner of the fish they caught, I had already eaten dinner.

Alaska 2010

Aug 10, 2010 - Johnsons Crossing, YT

Campground: Johnson’s Crossing Campground Services The campground is located on the banks of the Teslin River and home of the world-famous cinnamon buns. It’s a historic highway lodge location, originally one of the first lodges on the Alaskan Highway and owned by Robert Porsild. Later Porsild renamed it Johnson’s Crossing which was the local name for the Teslin River bridge. Despite the fame of the cinnamon buns we preferred the apple fritters. The Teslin River is very good for grayling fishing and everyone went fishing except Richard. We...

North to Alaska 2010

May 24, 2010 - Polar Express Worked Hard Today

Left camp this morning early and stopped for fuel one mile down the road. Man I am on EEE and fuel is 129.9 a liter. Well that was a bite in the tail but you got to have it. Got on the road and here we go up the Cassiar Highway for 150 miles till we turn left onto the Alaska Highway. Wasn't to bad when we first started out,but as time went on the worst it got. Finally Bev said you are coming up on 11 miles of construction gravel. She wasn't kidding,it was 11 miles of not once going over 9 mph. Most of which was slower than that. By the time...

Aug 8, 2008 - Johnson's Crossing

A 240 mile trip from Destruction Bay includes going through Whitehorse, YT again. I say through because we will be stopping at the WalMart for bread & milk, etc. before continuing on to Johnson's Crossing. Johnson's Crossing is east & south of Whitehorse. Our next rv stop is in an rv park which is really just an overnight stopping place for travelers. I am confident there will be no internet there since it is in the middle of nowhere. We seem to remember stopping in here for cinnamon buns on the way up to Alaska though.
