Thursday June 27- Pelly Crossing to Dawson City YT

We had parked in a pull-through sites, behind Wayne and Margie. So we pulled out and crossed over to the gas station for Wayne to fill up with diesel. They were closed, so we continued on our way. Pelly River and Bridge from campground as we were leaving.

We went down into the trench and along the Yukon River and into Dawson City.

We drove into Bonanza Gold RV Park and checked in. Before we went to our site, we went to the RV /car wash to wash the vehicles. Three minutes per Looney. I sprayed and Bob brushed. We were both covered in mud and sweating like crazy when we finished.

We went to our site, number 79A, and set up. We turned on the air and took showers. It went up to 102 degrees! It was hot, but at least we have 30 amp FHU with cable TV for $34 per night, Good Sam discount.

  1. 102-degrees. Don’t think it ever went out of the 80s the entire time we were in Alaska. That is quite unusual.
