This was a really fun stop. Our ride today was very short and we’re spending the night at Mukluk Annie’s Salmon Bake. It is quite an interesting place. If you eat at the café you can park free overnight, wash your RV for free, and even take a ride on the lake in a houseboat. The food is pretty inexpensive also.
The lake is surrounded by mountains and our site is beautiful. I am a bit concerned about tomorrow morning-we have to climb a dirt road along the side of the cliff with this RV. That should be exciting
There’s a gospel music tent set up near the restaurant and lots of little kids running around. This seems to be quite a family place. It’s been fun to see some of the others we’ve run into along the route here.
We visited the town of Teslin and the museum dedicated to George Johnson. He was a Tinglit who established the first store in the area, had a car brought in over the ice even though the town had no roads and taught himself to use cameras and develop photos. I recognized some of his incredible pictures from history books and encyclopedias. The museum is beautifully designed and a really fascinating place.
