at Watson Lake in the Yukon! Drove about 630 miles
today. Fantastic scenery! Mucho Lake is a beatiful
green. Almost stopped there to camp.
a break at 11 AM for coffee and a sandwich. Bought & sent
postcards. Got more to write, but there are too many
mosquitoes outside the tent. They are big, fast, and hungry.
in the Yukon! I can't believe it! Still got a long way
to go to Fairbanks.
and still light out. They say the sun starts rising here at
2:30 AM. I wonder what time it sets. By the time I reach
Fairbanks, it won't set at all.
cold, but I've got plenty of the blankets that I bought as gifts in
Mexico. They'll just be a little used when I give them away.

a brown bear today and a fox. Saw 4 black bear
yesterday. They say tbe brown bear are grizzles.
taped all the holes in my tent--don't want the mosquitos getting
me. Birds are still chirping. It would be nice to get a
good 6 or 7 hours sleep. Beginning to feel like a zombie!
