We headed out of Whitehorse this morning, stopped for fuel, and turned left on the Kl;ondike Highway, on our way to Dawson City. Surprisingly, the countryside became agricultural for the first 50 or so miles, before turning once again to lakes and forest. We decided to call it a short day, and stopped at the Carmake Hotel and RV Resort. When the highway was built between Whitehorse and Dawson City, a number of communities along the Yukon that had grown as a result of river steamship traffic became most towns. Carmake survives, however, because of its location on the highway. It's a great stopover, with a well stocked general store, a hotel/
RV park, a restaurant and a mile-long riverfront boardwalk. . Our site was on the river with a full view. Sunset now is 10:30 pm, and twilight does not go away, even in the wee hours. Milepost 4556.
