After leaving our lunch stop, we continued north to return to Yukon.
Every time we approach Dezadeash Lake northbound, I take a picture...
The ice was completely off Dezadeash Lake. It was beautiful today! No white caps!
Approaching Haines Junction...
At the junction in Haines Junction, we turned left.
There's many, many pictures of the area between Haines Junction and Kluane Lake on my site here. Today, I just sat back and enjoyed the scenery until we arrived at Kluane Lake.
The wind and sand storm were amazing! The most extensive that I have seen.
We pulled into a favourite spot and settled in. The ice was still on the north end of the lake but gone from the south end.
Steve tried some fishing...no luck! Last fall he caught a nice trout here.
The afternoon was warm and comfy.
I found this survey marker from 1943, when the Alaska Highway was constructed.
We had planned to stay the night. BUT I had forgotten about how quickly the sun would disappear behind the mountains. The air cooled quickly and it was still early in the afternoon. So we headed out again. Ended up driving home, just a couple of hours away.
