Haines Junction, YT

Friday - Today was a 370mile travel day ending in Haines Junction, YT. It was partially cloudy for most of the drive with some scattered showers. 

We had lunch at A&W in Whitehorse, and they had poutine. Which is fries with cheese curds and gravy. Pretty good and the first we’ve had on this trip.

We only spotted two black bear and a porcupine today but I thought I would mention that the highways have the brush cut way back to make it easier to spot wildlife headed for the road. It makes travel much safer. 

We are staying at a hostel in a wall tent with a nice wooden floor and propane heat. It’s pretty nice and, by far, the cheapest stay on this trip. Tomorrow will be a long-ish travel day at 500miles ending in Fairbanks. 


  1. Not sure if this is a stupid question... does the wall tent have a bathroom?

    1. Nope, had to go inside the building. That’s also where the kitchen, tables, games, books, and several more rooms. Including a couple of bunk rooms.
