Yukon Territory

Alaska Highway between Whitehorse & Haines Junction

I flew to Whitehorse for a visit in March 2011.  Temperatures were chilly during the nights.  However, the days were wonderful!

On Sunday March 6, 2011 with time on our hands, my aunt and I drove to Haines Junction.  The day was perfect!  Many of these images were taken through the truck's windshield ... it was challenging to stick the camera out the window due to the extreme wind chill! I hope you enjoy regardless ...
