Yukon graffiti:

the poor kids up here can't afford spray paint. They have to use rocks.

It was a nice spot.





we neglected to string the pan and plates (clean) up in the bear bag, so I rigged up a bear/critter alarm:

Somehow, a campfire just isn't quite right when it's this light out at 10pm.

Doc, can you bring bear pepper spray into Canada and Alaska, or do you have to purchase it in Country (Canada)?

Yeah... we snuck it in.

A girl's gotta have her bear spray.

Thursday May 19th 2011 M7 day 7

Big (wet) Creek Campground to Tetsa River Campground



click on image below for detail:


This turned out to be a nice day riding -- decent weather, signpost park, buffalo (or in the Canadian metric system, Bison), crossing the Rockies, the bizarrely blue Muncho Lake, and other sights. We woke up, however, a bit wet:



It wasn't far to Watson Lake, where we decided to see the signpost park, and dry out for a bit, maybe have some breakfast.

If you haven't been

to the signpost park, and you're in the neighborhood, don't pass it by.



I thought it was going to be a smallish, kitchy touristy thing... But it's actually HUGE -- it goes on and on and on and on. Still kitchy and touristy, but kinda impressive.





We left a couple:



This is kinda weird... we live in New York City, I'm from Chicago, and we're headed for Edmonton.

We killed some time

having a hot breakfast,



hoping the rain would clear,



which it did, and, as a bonus, the provincial liquor store opened, so we could stock up:
