Yukon Sights by Sue Thomas

Nahanni Range Road, Yukon (Part 3) and Campbell Hwy to Watson Lake

14 September 2007

We woke to a flat tire on the fifth wheel trailer. After breakfast, Steve changed the tire and we debated our options. We were only 39 km (24 miles) from the Campbell Highway. The peace, quiet and scenery along the Nahanni Range Road tempted us to turn back. However, we were also motivated to get to Liard Hotsprings (south of Watson Lake on the Alaska Highway).

Eventually we carefully crossed the "path" out of our camp site and turned west towards the Campbell Highway and Watson Lake.

After exiting Nahanni Range Road, we stopped at the rest area on the Campbell Highway.
The truck and fiver were a little dusty, but nothing too serious.

We continued south on the Campbell Highway towards Watson Lake. Another grocery shopping trip, a stop at the car wash, and lunch at the community park. The community park has a dump station and fresh water to top-up the water tank in an RV. 

From Watson Lake, we headed south on the Alaska Highway. Very much looking forward to an evening soak at Liard Hot Springs.
