It was nice to sleep in a real bed last night at the motel, but truth be told, it’s every bit as much work as it is to camp. You have to unload just about everything off the bike and haul it upstairs, because you probably don’t want to risk it coming up missing. Then in the morning you get to bring it all back down again and figure out how to fit it back on. Well, at least you get free soggy waffles and bitter coffee for free. Move over Wheaties...

Today we are finally getting into some nice terrain, as we enter the Northern Rockies.

It’s a sunny start:

Lot’s of animal sightings today, I believe the total number of bear sightings is up to 15 or 16 already.
The proof is in the pudding:

Now, over the past few days the weather had been medio-core at best and downright miserable at times, but today was beautiful. I do not think we could have had a better day to have come across Muncho Lake.


And of course, what trip up the Al-Can would be complete without a stop at the Liard Hot Springs:

We sure look like we are living the good life, eh? (I learned to say eh? Since I’ve been in Canada)

Made it into the Yukon!

Our slice of Heaven for tonight:
