We had bypassed this portion of the Alaska Highway when we drove north from Whitehorse to Dawson City. When planning the route, I tried not to backtrack as much as possible, but once actually driving midst this gorgeous scenery, we realized the view going the opposite direction was equally impressive! We really would have seen different eyefuls of wonder had we traveled this same route a month prior. Now we could see the white-tops of the St. Elias Range (Remember that huge icefield within this national park?) as we moved southeast.
We made it to Whitehorse in time for an evening stroll by the Yukon River before supper and nightfall. In the Yukon, Land of the Midnight Sun, we had noticed the elongated days the beginning of August. Now we are seeing it get dark much earlier. Another adjustment!
