Day 47 - Travel to Dempster Corner, YT

Today started with light rain and finished with light rain. The roads were in fair condition. I drove speeds from 15 mph to 55 mph.

This pond with Fireweed growing next to it caught my eye.

We went from light rain to heavy fog, but it didn't last very long. We drove out of it in about 20 miles.

There are many picturesque ponds like this one along the way.

I caught up with the Caravan after about 75 miles and they were going very slowly.

So, not being a patient follower, we pulled off the road at this picture perfect spot, had some lunch, read more of our books, listened to music and waited for an hour or so before continuing our journey.

We had missed this sight on the way out. It is called Elephant Rock, and for good reason. Can you find him?

We drove along red oxide tinted Engineers creek,

and into a pass surrounded by gray dolomite hills.

We only encountered one road grater today. Not surprising with the fog and rain.

Some folks had success today at Two Moose Lake. There was only one (female) Moose. Here she is shown feeding on the other side of the lake. (Ed Rzepka)

After eating she left the lake and sauntered off across the road in front of Ruth, who thought it was just a big horse. With no antlers, I can see how she would make that mistake. (Ann Lee)

Panoramic picture looking down on North Fork Pass and the river.

This time, crossing the wood-planked bridge over the Klondike River, it is dry and in the sunlight.

The campground had a "lightly" powered sprayer to clean our rigs. At a dollar a minute, it cost about $20 to get the heavy encrusted mud off our units. Here Ron is finishing washing his truck. Great blue boots, Clare!
