Some friends and I just paddled from Carmacks to Dawson City, Yukon.

The trip runs about 400 kilometres with the canoes pushed by the current all the way. The scenery is majestic.

The craggy scenery of the White Pass

The white pass is an area of the Klondike Highway in the direction of Alaska.

You might recall it from this winter. Here is the same region being patrolled by an avalanche crew.

The region retains snow all year. It’s a cold, windy, white pass.
