Yukon Sights by Sue Thomas

Peterson's Beach Recreation Site (Fraser Lake) to
Meziadin Lake Provincial Park (Cassiar Highway)

24 August 2009 - Monday

Woke up to a chilly fifth wheel. On the road at 9 after a walk on Ormond Trail, across the road from the campground.

Sawmill at Fraser Lake, BC, Highway 16
Looking south from a viewpoint on the Ormond Trail, towards Fraser Lake and its sawmill

Good driving today, although drove into some light rain near Telkwa on Hwy 16. Departed the junction of Hwy 16 & 37 (the Cassiar Hwy) at 2:30 p.m.

The further north we ventured the harder it rained. By the time we reached Meziadin Lake Provincial Park/campground it was p-o-u-r-i-n-g.

During our dog walk around the campground, met a fellow heading north to Anchorage on his motorcycle. Poor guy was soaked. He was a bit concerned as he had heard that the Cassiar was all gravel northward. We assured him that was not the truth and he'd encounter only a few gravel/dirt sections.

The park host says the weather was not clearing for another few days. Wonderful!
