Watson Lake to km 1048.5 on the Alaska Highway

11 August 2010 - Wednesday

We left Watson Lake at 2 p.m. About 3:30 p.m., barely north of km 1048, the Garmin indicated we were approaching a possible boondock spot I had waypointed earlier.

We needed a break and after walking in to check out the spot, we decided to stay. Steve capably backed into the lakeside camp spot. Then he decided it was time to try some more fishing!

The sunny skies were nice. The lakeshore was marshy. The fishing poor. And there was a family of loons on the lake who weren't amused by our presence.

Later in the evening it rained a bit. We looked forward to a good night's sleep knowing we were in the middle of nowhere with no one around!
