Scenic Whitehorse, YK Territory

Ok, food lovers...hope ya'all are full (burp...) and now is the time to take a stroll and walk off those lbs. This was on our 5k journey around Whitehorse so sit back and let your fingers do the walking....

bars for cars only


for dogs only...


cool down for kids only...


one of many beautiful murals painted on side of buildings around Whitehorse


garden art


beautiful Fireweed flower throughout the territory...was told that it's so named because they are the first to come up after the destruction of forest fires.





this Yukon Squirrel was having fun with us playing and jumping on the tree while I took its picture...




Whitehorse's dam



This is where the "fish ladder" is located...just below the dam


the "Fish Ladder"


these are young Artic Grayling swimming in the fish ladder... (salmon run was no where to be seen--they're currently approaching Dawson City and will arrive in Whitehorse in 3 weeks)


this is what an adult Artic Grayling looks like...


rushing water over the rock (looks like whale's tail) below the dam








town of Whitehorse (notice the SS Klondike on the right)


the end of a beautiful day...(do you see 2 rainbows?)


good night all ... and hope tomorrow brings us good luck (the darned part)!! -Sharon
