Another correction, today is Day 246 as yesterday should have been 245, I suspect the 3 very long days are messing with my mind, will get it right before the end of this Leg.
This was the sign outside our Motel last night:
We left just after 7h00, without our rain-gear on as the sun was shining, since early. We are far North already, so this is the amount of Day-Light we are having now, and it is going to increase as we continue heading North.

This is a photo of yesterday, not sure if I posted it???
Tomorrow we have a short day, we ride to the next town on the map, Whitehorse.
