Here is more on our trip to Alaska this summer. We finally made it to Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada) on June 14. This is a beautiful town on the Yukon River.
We stayed at an RV Park just outside of town. It was pretty filled up with an RV caravan group.
This is the Miles Canyon suspension bridge over the Yukon River in Whitehorse. Many a gold seeker, making their way north on the Yukon River water route, lost their lives on the rapids that use to be here before the dam was built.
More of the canyon. The water is a deep, green shade.
There's always a friendly person to take our photo.
Whitehorse is a beautiful city and the capital of the Yukon Territory. We enjoyed our time there. After viewing the canyon from above we took a cruise down the river the next day.
Here's our boat to cruise down the Yukon River.
Another view of the suspension bridge over the Yukon River. This one from our boat.
Another day we toured the S.S. Klondike dry-docked in Whitehorse next to the river. This is a stream boat that traveled up and down the Yukon River carrying passengers and cargo. It has been beautifully restored.
Downtown Whitehorse hubby spotted these cute bike parking garages. Aren't they a hoot! This is a very physical city...everyone riding bikes, hiking or walking. Well, everyone..that is...except us!
I spotted this HUGE, wooded statue of a Royal Mounted Policeman in front of a downtown hotel. Isn't it neat!
I thought I would leave you with a view of the surrounding gorgeous scenery from downtown Whitehorse.
What a beautiful setting for a town.
