trace: trans Canada tour Day 7 and 8

January 21, 2015: Day 7 

Delayed for a day....but all okay!

Adrien helps our new travelling companions after sheer ice forces them off road

Adrien, Tristan and "Huey" only made it 100 km today before icy rain made the roads too treacherous to continue. We backtracked to the "Rancheria" motel after our new travelling companions Sunny and Jag slid off the road and ended up in snow bank. It happened right after we had spun out on the ice, so we decided to wait until the roads were in better condition. 

January 22, 2015: day 8

We all set out early and travelled slowly in a U-Haul convoy towards Whitehorse....beautiful!

We arrived safely in Whitehorse with enough time for an afternoon snowshoe before heading out to see a couple of shows at the Pivot Theatre Festival at Nakai Theatre. Tomorrow, we make the long drive to Dawson City.
