We'd been bracing ourselves for Watson Lake, because when we stayed there in 1998, the mosquitoes were gigantic and nearly sucked us dry. We tent camped during that trip, and after having snuggled in with the kitty that night, we heard the dogs rustling around and even yelping. We unzipped the tent to see a large, black mass of mosquitoes hanging on the end of one of the dog's noses as he whined and pawed at his face and had diarrhea from the stress out the other end. I cupped my hands around his muzzle and my hands became a bloody mess. Tony wound up sleeping in the car that night with the dogs (the dogs would chew the seats if unattended.) Ahh memories of the Al-Can! It's a dream-come-true to be doing this trip again, and with our sons. I'm happy to report that our stay in Watson Lake was not anything like our previous! O Canada!
