As soon as we crossed the border, we saw a grizzly bear on the side of the water. Surprisingly big, it stood still as a couple cars rolled by a little slower than normal. One car was stopped beside it and had it's windows open and I could see hands holding cameras sticking out and taking pictures... it didn't seem like the best idea as they were actually very close.
We got into Whitehorse adn made our way to the Robert Service Campground. It's a very quaint and nicely set up campground that has only tent sites, so you don't have big areas lined with RVs and it's much more intimate. It's in a great location, has showers and dishwashing areas. The office also sells ice cream and some bakery items.
It was still early, and we wanted to get used to the long daylight hours, so we headed into Whitehorse to explore a little and walk around. The visitor centre in Whitehorse is well presented and right by the Yukon River. If you walk down the Yukon River, you'll eventually get back to the Robert Service Campground, and is a great walk.
For dinner, we rocked the salad-in-a-bag and added about two cans of beans to our mexican mix. Wonderfully delightful, and the evening was finished off with several rounds of Big 2. Another staple activity on our trip.
