Toad River Lodge to Watson Lake (via Liard Hot Springs)


View The Alaskan Highway (Alcan) on divatmotoros's travel map.

We started after a lazy morning and passed by the small airport opposite our night stop. On the road we have seen different animals today, after our recent bear spotting. We have seen caribous, later buffalos and a coyote.

Then at a road construction we were led by a pilot car again through the closure. This time we had to drive far into the woods on a temporary detour which was created to skip the construction part of the main road. It was fun following the truck with a large "Oversize" sign on its back.

The main programme for today was the Liard Hot Springs which is a natural hot water source available for bathing in its natural setting. A nice little pond is accessible by a ten minute walk from the parking on a wide boardwalk. The kids including me enjoyed the pond especially the small stream of water running under trees.

After the splashing we finished a nice meal in the parking area and I even had a short nap before continuing. We have crossed from BC to Yukon for thr first time and we have stopped for fuel at a retro petrol station with analogue counters and a quite damaged welders and tire shop.

By 7:30pm we have arrived to Watson Lake where we first visited the Signpost Forest.

Then we stopped at Downtown RV Park where we washed Fordy with Ábel and planned to wash Sally in the morning before leaving.
