“The Northern Lights have seen queer sights. But the queerest they ever did see was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge I cremated Sam McGee”.–Robert Service “The Cremation of Sam McGee”
I write this from our campsite on the shores of Lake Lebarge. We are about 45 minutes outside of Whitehorse, the capital of The Yukon Territory. Just yesterday I was standing in Robert Service’s cabin in Dawson City and tonight I stand at the location of his most famous poem “The Cremation of Sam McGee”. How cool is that?
The Klondike Loop drive is a long one. Tok, AK to The Taylor highway to The Top of The World Highway in Yukon, Canada. Through Dawson City and down to Whitehorse. Then up the Alaska Highway back to Tok. Of course don’t forget the drive to and from Anchorage to Tok 🙂
We are about 700 miles from Anchorage at this point.
