Alaska Trip Day 30

July 29




Hello All

We started today with light sprinkles.  After breakfast at the airport cafe we drove about 10 miles and stop and put on the top half of the rain suits.  We had light rain on and off today but ended up the day at Watson Lake with nice weather.  We decide to not go to Liard Hot Springs today because of little chance of getting lodging there.  We may stop at the hot spring when we go by tomorrow.   Watson Lake is a interesting town as it is the home to sign city.  Their are over 62,000 sign in the forest in the center of town.  Candy took some pictures.  On the way here we saw a black bear.  It was raining and Candy didn't get the camera out.   We are staying at The Big Horn it is a nice hotel with big rooms.  On the way here the safety chain dragged too long and broke into two pieces.  I will try to get parts in Dawson tomorrow.  I check the mileage today and we are at 7,416 it seem that we have put on a extra 1000 mile from the original plan.
