Flag of Canada  , Yukon,
Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Beautiful day, crystal clear skies!  We had a glorious day for riding.  I think the temperature got up to around 80 degrees. 

We headed for Liard River where the hot springs are.  The natural hot springs gets to approximately 110 degrees (sometimes up to 124).  It was very relaxing.  After a long ride, it was rejuvenating. 

We met people from all over the world there.  Very interesting and enjoyable.  It I can't get the pictures loaded from the springs tonight, I will when we get to Alaska and have (hopefully) better reception.

We stopped on the Alcan highway at a very remote RV park that is run by the mother and son (father built the log cabin).  They made homemade cinnnamon buns that are the size of a canteloupe.  They were made by the son and he pulled them straight from the oven.  They were wonderful.  We actually stopped for gas, but he puts the gas sign out so people stop so he can sell them the buns!  At least that's what he said.........the truth is he hasn't gotten his gas delivery for spring.

At Watson Lake they have over 67,000 signs from all over the world that visitors have nailed to posts in their park.  We've included some pictures.  There signs from Orrville, Marshallville, Wooster, Millersburg, Cleveland, Summit Co. - all over OHIO including Marietta (Lee)!  Glad to see OHIO folks get around too.

We are experiencing the "white nights" of Canada in the Yukon.  It is daylight most of the night.  I wake up in the middle of night and think I overslept!

Linda and Randy are the eagle eyes!  They have spotted all the wildlife!  Yesterday we saw buffalo and bear along the road in the wild several times. 

The room at the Belvedere was good, the restaurant fine..........but no air conditioning and it was HOT on the 2nd floor.

Randy is still waiting to hear what the damage is on his bike in Montana.

Until next time..........God Bless to all and hope all is well with you. Thanks for following our adventure!

Tom, Sandy, Randy & Linda

There are a few signs there, "eh?" The hot springs had to have felt great to you after all those miles. We stopped there last summer when we drove down to S.F. It was such a hot summer, and your trip would have suited me much better. I couldn't wait to get back to Alaska and away from all the traffic and hot air.. I think your timing for visiting here will be perfect.

Haha, I love the Marietta sweaters infront of the Marietta sign!!!! Was that coincidence or did you have to dig them out of your bags? Good pics!

This is from Linda - Yes, it was a coincidence that your mom and dad had those sweat shirts on. They sure are proud of you and your schooling. Glad that you are following along with us. Santa and Mrs. Claus
