We retraced our previous path on the Alaska Hwy back to Watson Lake's turn-off and called it a day. Tomorrow promises to be a long day (669 km's) on the Cassier Highway with the plan to make it into Hyder, AK. This would prove to be a very remote roadway that was only paved in the last few years.
Did a couple loads of laundry, got on the intenet, and then to bed. Lights out folks.
