We were excited to head west after we stocked up in Whitehorse. With our loaded, charged and full Camper, we merged onto the Alaskan Highway and headed west. Kluane National Park is well known for some amazing views, lots of huge mountains, including Mt Logan, the tallest mountain in Canada. Lots of glaciers, bears and sheep to see as well.
We first stayed at Pine Lake, about two hours west of Whitehorse, and had a great time riding our bikes into Haines Junction. We enjoyed the views and slowed down for a couple of days. We found an amazing rasberry patch and enjoyed the fruits of summer.
Congdon Creek was a pretty exciting place to stay, as it was right on the “bear corridor”, or the Bear Buffet as we called it. The feeling was that they built this campground on the wrong spot, as the giant grizzly bears have been using it as a highway for a lot longer. The tenters had to stay in an electrically protected enclosure, but our camper kept us safe and warm once again. We used Congdon Creek as a jumping off point for a great hike called the Sheep’s Creek Trail that overlooked an amazing river delta
This was a very interesting region to explore. We drove up the Alaska Highway as far as Burwash Landing, which was still about another 150km to get to the actual border. It was still closed to Canadians when we got there, so we will have to come back again for an Alaskan adventure.
