Watson Lake, Yukon

    I made it to Watson Lake !
    This is in the plowed parking lot of the "Historic Air Force Lodge".
    The Lodge is an old pilot's barrack from WWII. Super clean, ( you have to remove your shoes at the door ) and cheap at 70.00 Canadian. Showers and bathrooms down the hall.
    The owner is a motorcyclist , and he was happy to have the first guy of the year on a bike.
    I heard this over and over on this trip. Made me feel like a harbringer of spring, like a robin...
    And I was happy to not be riding anymore. I didn't fall down, and I wasn't camping in a snowstorm. I'd have pitched my tent and waited for the storm to subside except:
    1 I don't think tent stakes would've been worth having in the frozen ground.
    2 I couldn't find a place to pull my bike off the road.
    3 I hardly had any food, and I'd drank all my water.

      Dude, what WERE you thinking! Alaska in April? ; ) And I thought 40 degree rain was a bummer touring the U.P. in June! Seriously, that's a great adventure, wish I could do a trip like that!
