Whitehorse to Rancheria Lodge, Alaska Highway

28 March 2013 - Thursday

With the Easter long weekend ahead, a trip to Liard River Hotsprings seemed a good idea. We wanted to see the new change rooms at the springs and enjoy some long soaks in the rustic pools.

To get a head start on the 400 mile drive, we left Thursday after work.
Skies were clear, as was the Alaska Highway!

I didn't get any pictures between Whitehorse and Teslin as I was driving.  From Teslin, Steve drove so I was able to take some shots.

The sky remained bright enough until about 9 p.m., when we reached Rancheria Lodge at historical mile 710.  The lodge was closed but the owner graciously consented to our parking in the lodge's yard for the night.

It was a chilly -10C (14F) as we settled in.
