Construction sites – real eye catchers

or the four seasons of the Yukon

Construction sites are in Canada – at least for men – real eye catchers! Traffic at construction sites, both in town and on country roads, are not regulated by traffic lights but by good-looking women.

16. Route (200 km) - Carcross

View Larger Map

Actually we wanted to drive to Skagway, Alaska. Unfortunately the weather was to bad and the clouds blocked the view of the landscape so we decided to reverse in Carcross to Whitehorse. Carcross was originally named Caribou Crossing because of the herds of Caribous traversing the river at this place - until the white settlers came.

Canadian Dimensions

The corner seems to be a widely used unit to explain somebody, how far a location is. Canadians sometimes answer the question how far it will be to So-and-so: „Oh not to far, it’s just around the corner. Eh!“ You must know a real Canadian uses „Eh!“ at least once in a sentence better more. If you get such an answer be prepared that the corner could have a length of some hundred kilometers.

A typical Canadian Family?

We could not drive very far today, as an accident blocked Hwy 97 for several hours, so we stopped in Quesnel. The next leg of our journey took us to Burns Lake on Hwy 16, where we met the nicest “Canadian” family.

Paradise and retour

Stikine RiverDease Lake should have been only be a short overnight stop on our way to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory. After quickly having parked the motorhome on the gravelled campground, paying 28 $ to the tight-lipped owner and having a quick dinner at the opposite restaurant we wanted to go to bed.
