Yukon (again) 20 – 22 August – Summer 2017

Kluane National Park


We are back in the Yukon, heading home.  Stopped at Destruction Bay to stay the night.  It’s basically a gas station and they have maybe 1/2 dozen sites you can rent in the parking lot, not far from the gas pumps. But it was only $12 for one night and we had 15 amp hydro; we didn’t unhook as we got in late and intended on leaving early.  Picturesque eh?  We went to the restaurant to eat and then into the bar to play pool.  Best 2 out of 3 won by me.  (insert happy face)

The next day we were heading back to Whitehorse.  This is a beautiful drive and this is part of the Alaskan Highway we didn’t do on the way out here, so when we get to Whitehorse, we will have done the entire Alaskan highway.

This is such a beautiful drive and we stopped at Kluane National Park and went into the Thachal Dhal Visitor Centre.  The Visitor Centre is situated in the Ä’äy Chù (Slim’s River) Valley,  a one-hour drive north of Haines Junction on the Alaska Highway.  It has different exhibits as well as hiking and back country information.  Dall sheep viewing opportunities are also here and you can see lots of little white dots on the mountains, those sheep again!  What a spectacular spot, it is surrounded by mountains and the Visitor Centre sits by the Slims River.  Some of the places we have been to are literally hard to describe, even with photos, they are just so spectacular.

We stayed at the same RV Park, Pioneer RV Park,  in Whitehorse only at a different site.  We were right at the front last time but this time we went up in the back of the park to the wooded sites, site 112.  Very quiet, nice spot.  The first photo is the site we had on our way through Whitehorse to Alaska and the second photo is in the back of the park in the wooded areas.

Back to the city and stopped at Yukon Brewery again but the same woman was working and long story short, we didn’t stay long lol.

We were told of another brewery back towards the RV Park so we headed there.



Winterlong Brewery and the staff there are amazing, so friendly and welcoming.  We shared a taster tray and they had lots of IPAs.  Hoppy makes me happy.  Took home a growler of the red IPA.


Next day we were up super early and packed and left, driving straight through to British Columbia.
