Hello

First I apologize for my Poor Grammer and my inane ramblings.
Second I wish i could be more Eloquent like Whazoo and the like

So the DW and I had a few days off and decided to take a truck camper trip to the Yukon territories to a place called Takahini Hot springs.
First there was a 7 hour ferry ride from Juneau AK to Skagway AK then a overnight stay in Skagway because the ferry gets in too late to allow one to cross the Canadian border. We stayed at the Pullen RV park in Skagway, very nice park. We got up around 9 am and headed out to cross the border into Canada. well the Canadian border guards had different ideas Well anyway after a 1 hour search of my vehicle we were on our way took us 3 hours thru beautiful Canada scenery and we arrived at the Takhini hot springs and camp round

Thanks for the trip report - nice countryside.

What did it look like they used that F650 for? I assume they weren't just using it to haul a couple of hundred pounds of tools around.

Thanks for posting the photos and trip report. I have never been to Takahini Hot Springs. I have been to Liard Hot Springs though. You photos make me want to get back to visit Sooner than Later. I like to tell others to visit Alaska as it is such a beautiful and wonderful place. Of all the places I have visited only once, Alaska is the place I want to go visit again the most.

TheBigTiny! Got to love that name. Good trip report. I trust the border guards put your stuff back in pristine condition. [emoticon] The ride on the ferry would be fun enough to me and the rest of your trip is icing on the cake.

No they did not put the stuff back they were quite rude in fact.

as far as the ferries that is what i do I work on the ferries as Chief Engineer It is like pulling teeth for me to ride them but my beautiful DW loves any opportunity to ride them.

Thanks

I, too, enjoyed your "ramblings" and the pictures. We've been to the hotsprings, but it's been a long time ago now. Would like to return in the future. Thanks for sharing, and happy camping!

Nice photos Chris. Looks like the Hot Springs has made a lot of building improvements in the recent years. It must have been close to 30 years since I last stopped at the Hot Springs. Drove by there this summer but didn't stop. Now after seeing your photos, I suspect we will pull in on the next trip and spend some time.
Great shots of the lake, excellent color.
