Johnson Crossing, Teslin, YT

The S. S. Klondike, Whitehorse, Yukon
Tuesday, July 21, 2015, Johnson Crossing, Teslin, YT (Mile 836 AK Highway) - 231.6 Miles Today, 6176.8 Miles for the Trip

We thought about doing breakfast at the Destruction Bay Lodge since we liked the owner & the food, but on second thought, they had a full campground and there was only the owner cooking, so we decided it would be too busy and ate at the Talbot Arms Restaurant. I had French Toast - Not too bad, but the hash browns were a bit strange, and the service so so.

We drove through light rain off & on, and stopped to shop for food at Whitehorse. After shopping, we stopped to take a quick look at the S. S. Klondike, the largest boat to cruise the Canadian part of the Yukon River. After that it was on to Johnson Crossing. It is a small campground along the Alaskan Highway. We are in sites 22 & 23, Electric (15 amp) and Water for $31.50. Free WiFi (at your site for a change) and $1.00 showers for 8 minutes. By the way, I still don't know what the official abbreviation for the Yukon is - so far I've seen YT, YK, YKT. I'll just use the one that appears on the campground receipt! A photo of the "about the S. S. Klondike & the usual site photo at today's LakeshoreImages page.

The campground has "The World's Best Cinnamon Buns", which are OK, but not the best I've had. Still, a good snack before dinner!

Dinner will be a shrimp & pasta dish made by Anne.

Until tomorrow -

  1. Every restaurant that serves cinnamon rolls seems to boast as the "World's Best..." We had a restaurant that boasted "Home of the World's Biggest Buns". Go figure.
