Day 354: Back to Canada

This morning, we stopped at the visitor center at Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge. The visitor center has on display a cache structure. It would be filled with food, tools, and other things need to survive the winter so that if the main cabin burned down, the trapper would still have what he needed to survive through the winter:

Driving East, we crossed into Canada without incident and continued driving until we reached Haines Junction. On the way, we passed a grizzly grazing on the side of the road as well as another pair of bears running along the rosd a while later. We also wound our way around the shore of Kluane Lake, which had emerald green water. Quite the view of the St. Elias mountains from Haines Junction:

Unfortunately, there was a good bit of road construction and some of the road was dirt, so our truck is dirty again:

Tonight, we are overnighting in a grocery store parking lot in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. See the trip map for driving details.
