June 10, Mezadin Lake to Iskut 150 miles
|Lynx - checking us out|
It was a beautiful site but we were glad to leave the next morning, shooing the last remaining bugs out of the truck cab as we hit the highway.
From what we've heard, that will not be the last of them, they will probably get bigger, and we really need a way to keep them out of the trailer!
June 11-12, Iskut to Watson Lake
We were just starting to get a bit jaded. How many times can you gasp at snow capped mountain vista's and clear, blue mountain lakes? And that's when we pulled into Jade City. Seriously, there is a store only the Cassier Highway called "Jade City." The Cassier mountains, through which we were passing produces 80% of the worlds jade. The "City" is a direct seller of jade things. Statues, pendants, earings, and beatiful big blocks of jade.

The next day we drove the few miles to Watson Lake, leaving B.C. and the Cassier Highway. We're officially on the Alaska Higway now!
