Beaver Creek – Creek Lake CG

After a good nights sleep I didn’t wake up ‚til 9 am. It was freezing cold outside, 0 degrees C. I got a coffee, a warm breakfast sandwich and some food 2 days at the Motor Inn, loaded my bike and checked at the Visitor Center for accomodations, weather (sun for the next 4 days!!!) and road conditions.

Hendrik and I rode the first 12 km together, then we stopped for a short rest and each of us kept on at our own speed. I had a great view all day while the road was winding it‘ s way. It‘ s so wide out here, the road seems to be endless and the view made up for the climbs. 

In Koidern there was a small store that was open – though it should have been closed already. What a nice surprise. I got a coke and a piece of Walnut Cake, the owners told me about some nice Campgrounds and I was on my way again.

I was really glad when I reached the Creek Lake CG around 6pm because I was really tired. It‘ s a nice CG by a river, no showers, pit-toilets but free firewood and a cooking area with an oven. I pitched my tent and just finished eating some sandwiches when Hendik showed up. So we shared a campsite and tried to defend our food against the very annoying squirrels and birds together.

Later we sat at the campfire with our neighbors who are german as well. They are from Traunstein, Bavaria, traveling around in their camper and visiting their daughter who lives near Whitehorse. We stored our food in their camper for the night.
