We left Liard for our next stop, Watson Lake. This was a great drive, pretty but also LOTS OF CRITTERS Smile That is one of my favorite things (if you haven’t figured that out already). Jim and I are always on the look-out for animals along the way, we were not disappointed.

 

I would take pictures thru the windows, open the windows and take more pictures, rush from the front seat to the side seat (depending on which side of the road they were on) and Jim would so gracefully (most of the time) stop so that they were not blurry. Well, some are just because I am not the best photographer in the world Winking smile 

 

The other big claim to fame is that Watson Lake has the Sign Forest! LOTS of people put up signs of who they are, where they are from, or whatever crosses their fancy. The Loosey Goosey group put up a joint sign that included our names, so we are all good.

 

Jim and I also did a drive up the Campbell Hwy to see if we could find some critters along there. We did, so it was worth the drive, especially since we got to see our first Red Fox.

 

This was also a great opportunity to catch up on laundry, I posted a few things on Facebook, we went across the street to the Northern Lights Theatre and watch a short film on someone taking pictures of Northern Lights (which we will not see on this trip unless we stay into Sept. and then it will still be iffy).

 

Here are the pictures along the way…
