Darrin Sinclair has finally spilled the beans about Watson Lake! We know Watson Lake “is” the hidden gem of the Yukon but now the secret is out for all the world to see.

When my husband and I lived in northern Saskatchewan, we never could figure out why our relatives from Watson Lake rarely came south for a holiday. So, to get to know these relatives, I told my husband, “I’ll get a job in Watson Lake so you can bond with your brothers and sister. We’ll go just for a year.” That was 10 years ago. We stayed because we fell in love with Watson Lake.

It isn’t the physical beauty of the place that keeps us here – there are lots of “more beautiful places” in the Yukon like Faro, Haines Junction or Teslin. What keeps us living in the “hidden gem of the Yukon” are the awesome people. They make Watson Lake the great place it is.
