The race is a huge event for Whitehorse, with fans visiting from around the world.

Crescent moon over Whitehorse


A really nice crescent moon over Whitehorse this morning, with the planet Jupiter top right.

Beautiful how you can still see the entire moon despite the edge being illuminated.

Big snowflakes


Snow has arrived in late October this year. The week before Halloween offers big snowflakes covering everything with a light powder.

As the bumper sticker says: “I’d rather be skiing!”

Whitehorse community garden


Whitehorse’s community garden gets plenty of sunlight even though it’s at the foot of this bluff.

Whitehorse has the Dustball Invitational slo-pitch tournament every year. It’s a big weekend of games.

This year the Dawson City Dingbats team arrived looking like an old-timey baseball team with their beards and mustaches.
