Now, back to the trip. Day 11, June 2, 2009. It had been another warm night where we had trouble getting to sleep, as a result slept in until after 9 when we woke to another sunny, and what promised to be, hot, day. Quickly ate breakfast and headed towards Whitehorse with one quick detour to a viewpoint.
The above shot, taken from the viewpoint, is looking back towards the east. That is Miles Canyon on the Yukon river. Our plan now was to head to the nearest grocery store so we could stock up on groceries before it got any warmer (remember we had two dogs sitting in the truck). Found a beautiful big SuperStore, then while I packed away the supplies, Ernie went across the street to an equally impressive Canadian Tire, to buy a hatchet as that was something we had missed in the packing process.
This shot was taken from the same spot as the above, just looking back, away from the city.
