Our epic notes....
We didn't get up until 8:30 today...during any other trip that would be so freaking early but for us that was sleeping in. We hit the road after some delicious breakfast of cornbran squares. We drove up the Dempster listening to Pimsleur's level III french unit 1 & 2. I don't know if I'd be able to do these language things on my own but with a friend, it's downright hilarious. It made me realize how much I miss French. I'll have to get back in to it.

It was 71km or something around there before we hit Tombstone Peak Valley. It was a bit cloudy but still a beautiful site. We just kept on driving....a little further. And then a little further. We got a little past Windy Pass before turning around. It looked like a sandbox for a giant. So much fun.
Back AND front.
On the way back, we saw 3 moose at two moose lake which was quite exciting. We also sang our own rendition of "Moosie in the Sky with Diamonds." Songs are fun. Lunch was on some old road with our camping chairs. Absolutely essential. I kind of wish we'd had some sort of folding table because we couldn't cook on top of the cooler but it was still fun.

On the way back we stopped at Midnight dome and took some breathtaking pictures. We had a very random but dinner that felt like it completed me. Penne pasta with udon noodles cooked in chicken brother...tuna for Silan, chicken for me. 1/2 an avocado each....an orange for me and a kiwi for Silan. And a beer a piece. Wow that sounds a lot weirder now that I look back on it. But I'm sure it tasted good. We leave Dawson City tomorrow which is a bit sad. At least we finally get to meet Daniel! Our messages back and forth have been quite epic.
