Some Much Needed Rest...

Day #16
Date: 08/05/11
Traveled: Whitehorse, YT
Interstates: NA
Miles Driven: NA
Hours on Road: NA
Weather: Sunny & Breezy early with Showers during the late evening. (6 degrees)

This morning was our lazy day morning as we didn't get up until almost 11:30am.  The prior 2 longs days on the road had left everyone beat and so it was time to sleep in for a change.  The morning was cool and so we turned the electric blanket on for the first time during our trip.  Once everyone got up and got ready, we headed into the town of Whitehorse for lunch, to check out the town and to see how many more stamps we could get on our Yukon Gold Passport.

For lunch we stopped at the Klondike Rib, Salomon & BBQ Restaurant which was downtown.  Cameron and I had Elk Burgers and Fries while Robin and Colvin shared a large order of Fish & Chips.  For desert we all shared a HUGE Walnut Brownie with Ice Cream and Carmel sauce.  Everyone really enjoyed lunch as it was all very good.  After lunch, we went off in search of more stamps and to look around the town. We took a walk down by the river and the railway which was nice with the mountains in the background.  We visited several nice shops, one of which we found winter boots for the entire family on sale.  As for stamps, we were able to obtain 8 more by visiting the MacBride Museum of Yukon History, Old Log Church Museum, S.S. Klondike National Historic Site, Yukon Beringia Interpretive Center, Yukon Transportation Museum & the Yukon Visitor Center.  Each location was nice but the boys really enjoyed the Beringia Center as they had a full sized Wooly Mammoth Fossil on display.

Once all of this was finished and the day was winding down, we filled up the truck and headed back to the camper for supper where we are now preparing for another long day tomorrow.  A long day but one that will hopefully see us cross the border into AK.  We can't wait to get there!  To say there will be a feeling of excitement and of relief to see the "Welcome to Alaska" sign in a bit of an understatement.  Below are a pics from our day in town.  We hope to have lots more to share over the next few days.


God Bless & Safe Travels!
