Day 2 - Watson Lake, YT

The day started out fine in Tok though it did drop into the low 40s (°F). It was nice and clear coming into Whitehorse, YT, in the early afternoon. The weather started to deteriorate as I headed further east  with light snow on the trees. From The Continental Divide into Watson Lake, it snowed lightly though it was still above freezing. All of the rooms at Nugget City were taken so I headed into Watson Lake where I found a room behind the closed Chinese restaurant. At least it has WiFi so I don’t have to rely on Verizon to check the road conditions. This is the only picture I took on the 650 mile drive.

I’m using the SWConnect app which uploads to Spotwalla. Here is the link to my trip.

Good grief, Snow? It was cool here this morning but hot and dry south of the range with many fires threatening homes between Willow and Talkeetna. It appears some have burned.

You got to be kidding me. Where did the white stuff come from?

Well, you texted me saying you were heading down the Cassier. Spotwalla shows you not on the Cassier, yet, but I'm sure you are. I hope I haven't heard because you have no signal since you are, or should be, on the Cassier.

Yep, an early snow. Dease Lake was reporting 10” and the road through Muncho Lake didn’t look good...

It’s Canada!

No cell signal along the entire road. Not until I reached the other end.
