We finally passed through the area where the road collasped due to the flooding which caused our delay in leaving Muncho Lake.
According to one news report I read "The flooding events of the last week were “unprecedented,” said Rick Janowicz with the Yukon Department of Environment.
“This was just a massive event, never seen before.”
A snowpack that was 50 per cent deeper than normal combined with a late spring and rainfall exceeding 70 millimetres to create a “perfect storm,” Janowicz said "
We stopped at a turnout and while there checked out some info on the volcanic activity in this area that included undersea volcanoes millions of years ago. Took some pictures of one of the beautiful lakes. We are still amazed at all the long, wide lakes we have been seeing throughout British Columbia and the Yukon. During this stretch of the highway, we have gone in and out of BC and the Yukon a number of times.
Dawson Peaks Resort and RV Park is the nice commercial park that was our next stop. The sites are located in the trees right above Teslin Lake. Quite pretty.
