I was treated to a brilliant thunder and lightning storm last night. I was glad to be hunkered down in the comfort of Motel 8 in Dawson City.
The day started with lots of sunshine but then turned into overcast skies and occasional rain
There is a small side road just past Dawson City that takes you to Kiskatinaw Provincial Park and the historic bridge on the original Alaska Highway. The current Alaska highway has been very good, well-maintained roads.
Lunch in Fort Nelson was at the neighborhood pub. An interesting spot with good food and service.
The road after Fort Nelson was very scenic as I ascended into the mountains and clouds. The curves on this road are fun for motorcycling – the fog and clouds making it surreal at times.
I stopped by Tetsla River for their famous cinnamon rolls. This is one of the original sites from building the highway. This is a boiler for doing laundry.
I had a very interesting evening around a campfire with a few road workers. The cinnamon rolls are available anytime. Riding around on a Royal Enfield with Ural sidecar… well that was a bonus.
