A Great Rest Day!
Still at Carmacks, a great relaxing day, and a wonderful last night’s sleep in a bed for a while....

It's a beautiful day today, blue sky, sun streaming through our window, birds chirping and even the squirrels are nattering in their sometimes confusing bird like calls. The forecast is for sunny weather for the 'next week', whatever that means....but sounds very promising!

Yesterday was very relaxing, so much so we are taking a bit of a blog break today....

Just to add: We have 400 kilometres in front of us to Dawson City, and we expect his will take about 7 days. We will probably take the opportunity to spend two nights at a special campsite we hope to find along the way. Other than that we will just be out in the solitude of the river paddling every day. We are both really looking forward to getting back to wilderness life.

Hold thumbs for us getting safely through Five Fingers Rapids. It's about 30 kilometres into the day today and should be fun.

Till tomorrow, take care
