Monday was quite a day. We were driving along on great roads when all of the sudden we hit a ROUGH spot. I think everything was airborne for a second and then more bumps. The result was a collapsed table and two scrambled recliners. Our noon stop was on top of a mountain pass and it rained and hailed for about 20 minutes. The ground was white. We took off in a light rain and ½ mile down the road it was clear. That evening the guys glued our table back together and it is okay again. The recliners are a little worse for wear.

We stayed at Testa River Campground which is the mosquito capital of BC. The place generated its own power and had been in the family since the road was built. We saw two caribou, a mother bear with two cubs, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and buffalo on the roadside.

Tuesday night we stayed in Watson Lake, YT. This is the town with the park in the center of town that has signposts with signs from all over the world. It is quite a spectacle. Off to Whitehorse.
