Jun 14, 2016 - Moose Creek Provential Park YT

A couple of days ago on the way to Skagway I defeated a giant Mosquito. Today they counter attacked. Luckily Grandma had defensive measures (i.e. Mosquito head nets) to defend me from the attacking swarms at Moose Creek campground (in the Yukon). This allowed me to go on my first ever “big boy” mountain bike ride with out losing too much blood.

Jun 13, 2013 - "Larger Than Life" Skeeters!

June 9, 2013 Another beautiful morning in the Yukon. The Territorial slogan is, “Larger than Life”. I guess that it is! We retraced our tracks this morning 50 miles southwest on the Campbell Highway to the junction of the Klondike Highway. Along the way we saw two lynx. One sat about 25 feet away and posed for us. Nice of him! Probably a female – LOL!! We got a nice look at it but not a great picture – sorry. We headed north on the Klondike and stopped at the turnout/overview for the Five Fingers in the Yukon River. We descended the 219...

Jun 2, 2013 - Moose Creek

5-30-2013 From: Whitehorse To: Moose Creek Provincial Park Left Whitehorse this morning underway for Carmacks. We traveled on the Klondike Hiway, which is the road less traveled. We got to Carmacks pretty early in the day, so decided to press on to somewhere around Pelly Crossing. We chose Moose Creek. The road today was paved but did have a lot of surface breaks (Canadian language for bumps, chuckholes, patches,) and frost heaves in it. Miss Zoey was not impressed and kept giving Spike dirty looks. She spent a lot of time sitting on my...

Aug 5, 2010 - Moose Creek, Yukon, Canada

Stayed in Moose Creek Campground near Stewart Crossing for two nights on August 4 and 5. The campground was right on the creek and there were Grayling to be caught. Murray fished and caught some, but I decided not to fish. On August 6 I stayed in Whitehorse, Yukon so I could have wifi to call Susan on Skype. In Canada I don't have cell service so I need decent wifi so I can use Skype. For August 7 to 9 we stayed in Carcross, Yukon. The others went fishing again and again I did not fish. While in Carcross we didn't have any wifi so I could...

Aug 4, 2010 - Moose Creek, YT

Campground: Moose Creek Territorial Park We are very flexible. We were supposed to go to Stewart Crossing but Moose Creek Territorial Park seemed nicer. And it is. This campground looks like camping. Treed sites and lots of room. Of course it is dry camping. There is fishing in Moose Creek and the Stewart River. And there is sunshine and there is some heat. We have a generator that will run our air conditioner and this afternoon we needed it. But it is a laid back time and we are having fun. Murray and Shelle and we decided to venture to...

North to Alaska 2010

Jun 25, 2009 - Day one of drive from Whitehorse to Dawson City

We left Whitehorse for our drive to Dawson City. It was sunny and pleasant for most of the day. We expected the drive to take us 2 days as it is over 300 miles of curves and hills that make for slow driving. Shortly after starting our drive on the North Klondike Road , we passed 2 lakes that were like mirrors so Vicki wanted to take some photos of the lakes trying to catch the reflection just right. Another short distance we come upon Braeburn Lodge which is noted for it’s Cinnamon Buns. We had to stop!! They weren’t kidding – these things...

Miles Today: 221 Day: 44 Total Miles: 4633 We left Whitehorse Yukon Territory this morning and headed towards Dawson City. We knew that tonight we would be camping without hookups. The only wildlife we saw was 3 Porcupines. They had their quills pointing at us and they looked very menacing and not to be messed with. It was a nice drive but nothing special. We ended up staying at Moose Creek Provincial Park. Nice Park, but no hookups and the Mosquito’s were the worse that we have seen anywhere. You had to cover yourself in “Off” to keep them...

Jul 17, 2006 - Mayo and Carmacks

July 17, 2006 8:00 a.m. Headed to Stewart Crossing. Sometimes you can forget you are so far out in the country. We just passed the Dawson Airport and sitting on the tarmac is a four-engine passenger plane. This type plant that would service many of the towns in the lower 48 in the 60's and 70's. If someone were to blindfold you and plunk you down here you would have a hard time realizing just how far north you were. At least until you realized that the sun never seems to set. We are following the Klondike River upstream. The road hugs the...

May 21, 2006 - Carmacks to Stewart Crossing.

Fort Selkirk is about 20 miles from Stewart Crossing but you can only get there by small plane or boat and I have neither. Anyway, Sgt. Preston used to mush his dogs along the frozen Yukon and he sometimes dropped his prisoners off at Ft. Selkirk. I've always wanted to go there.
