I plan on spending the next two nights in Whitehorse in a hotel. This will give me a days rest from sitting on the bike, an opportunity to do a bit of planning for the next leg to Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk and get some food and a means of carrying some extra fuel. When Nina and I originally put this rest day in the schedule we did not really notice that today, July 1st, is Canada's national day. Hence when I arrived in Whitehorse this morning a little after 11:00 am the Canada Day Parade was ending.

I dawdled on the short ride into Whitehorse this morning. My room would not be ready until 13:00 and I did not want to sit around waiting for hours. I devoted some time to a few scenery photos.
