Beaver Creek is a small community in the Western Yukon that borders with Alaska. For a drive on our day off we sometimes go to visit a friend who has a restaurant there called,’Buckshot Betty’s’. She is always very busy and always short of help. It is just a given here in the Yukon that most service
businesses are run short-handed!
Carmen, who is the owner, finished most of the inside of this restaurant all by herself. She is a very talented lady I would say.
This bar top is just one of the unique touches she has in her restaurant. It has a heavy acrylics coating on it which makes it easy to wipe and great for display too.
See that foot hanging out of the wood stove? Carmen told me a father of two whining boys told them that is were they place children that are misbehaving. Oh my, I guess it made him start crying! Poor fellow.
Anyway, if you ever pass through Beaver Creek my friends, you have to stop in ‘Buckshot Betty’s’ for a bite to eat. You will not regret it. She sent me home with a just out of the oven cinnamon roll which I thought would last for two days. Ha! Once I started I just couldn’t quit. Of course I have no willpower when it comes to homemade cinnamon rolls. Does anyone? I’d seriously like to know.
On our way home we spotted a dancing bear. I can’t believe I got this shot of him, because there were already 3 cars parked snapping pictures. I was surprised he stuck around so long with all of that attention.
The roadsides are lined with these delicate pink roses and blue flowers right now too.
It was very cloudy and rained most of the day. But it was a day off of work for us and a day away from the lodge, so it was a very good day after all!
