When I woke up there was a thin cloud layer and as the day went on it became warmer and brighter, and so did my mood!!
I rode for over two hours heading east on the Alaska Highway to one of my favourite places, Burwash Landing, located on Klaune Lake that is topped by Sheep Mountain. It is such an eye full when travelling through this area. The water on the correct day of sunshine and no wind has the most amazing emerald colour like I have never seen anywhere in the world. I took quite a few pictures, but the "blue" doesn't show through.
I arrived at Haines Junction and went into the tourist information booth to sort out what was next. My plan was to take the highway from this intersection to Haines, then take a ferry from Haines to Skagway, but the ferry runs at 10:00 pm tonight and would deposit me in Skagway at 11:00 pm at night
This road starts in the Yukon, then crosses into British Columbia and then 10 Km before it ends, it crosses the US border.
I visited Carcross (named after Caribou Crossing) where the longest continuously operating business exists.
The forecast is for rain again tonight so I am booked into Sergeant Preston's Lodge in Skagway, Alaska.
I took a quick walk up and down the main street and it is full of tourists, mostly from cruise ships that are docked at one end of the main street.
Distance travelled: 391 Km
