Alaska Hwy Day 5

Carol & I left Liard Hotsprings a little after 7 AM.  We wanted to catch a glimpse of some morning animals and did we. The best so far was a grizzly.  Wow… pic of that hunk…but…

We are in Watson Lake next to the Signpost Forest behind the Tags gas station.  Everybody filled up with fuel. It’s cheaper in the Yukon than BC. Diesel was equal to $5.45 after you convert the liters and dollars over. I last got fuel in Alberta (659 miles) and took about 111 gallons this time. The Tags campground was = to $28 US dollars and we all are staying two nights.DSC_0050 DSC_0049

We ALL helped ourselves to a couple of RV sights for our 4 o’clock.DSC_0048 

Then a Good Sam Rep recommended a restaurant down the road about 15 miles.  What the hell.  Look out..vehicles full of hungry Escapees……DSC_0052

The first shock was the much over priced menu even for the Yukon. The second was the food – PP…DSC_0053

This snow cat wouldn’t even eat here.DSC_0061

The back of their door to the gift shop was outstanding. DSC_0062


Here’s someone making me the number one driver again. DSC_0063

This is the the place we had to finance our bill.  They also have a over priced good sam RV park.  WE will never even give it a second chance.  Rip off restaurant is what they should call it…..that’s sad…..hey – life goes on for them with a little of our money – 1 time.DSC_0064


All amounts converted to US measures & dollars and since crossing the border at Sweetgrass, MT on May 9, 2011. Yes, I will make mistakes – oh need to write.
