Instead we start up the Klondike Hwy toward White Pass and re-enter Canada. Although the lighting isn't as good today, the southern Klondike Hwy/White Pass is almost as striking as the Haines Hwy. Some of the water is dark blue and right next to it is turquoise. My theory is turquoise is in a glacial fed stream vs. rain fed puddles? Unfortunately, it starts to become clear the haze in the air is actually smoke. This is an omen of days to come... We reach Carcross at 6:30pm, fuel up and take a snack break as we never ate lunch. We phone ahead to Teslin to reserve a room knowing we'll be a late arrival, and head east on Route 8 to reach the Alcan. Not many pics from here because we're making time. We arrive at the Yukon River Motel about 8pm, grab some dinner before the restaurant closes and call it a night. .
