Day 64 (August 23) – Haines Junction to Watson Lake

This day the drive was eastward across the southern Yukon. We stopped briefly in Whitehorse for gas and groceries and then continued on to Watson Lake. The stretch from Whitehorse to Watson Lake was the only part of our return trip that is a repeat of the first part of our trip. The beginnings of fall colors were more evident on this day.
