To Kluane Lake - Alaska Highway, Yukon
18 September 2014 - Thursday
The days are getting shorter and our opportunities for camping
are also becoming limited. It was a good day to head out, maybe to
visit Beaver Creek, my hometown.
This marsh, not too far from our place, usually has some birds in it
Heading west towards Haines Junction
We sometimes camp at Pine Lake campground near Haines Junction. But
the clouds were out so we weren't tempted to stop.
Sometimes we camp at Pine Lake but the weather looked good further
Carrying on north from Haines Junction.
Northward on the Alaska Highway
The sky cleared again, brilliant blue!
The fall colours accent the marshes nicely, even though most of the
leaves are off the trees
Sulphur Lake seemed high
The descent to Christmas Creek, with Kluane Lake in the distance
Kluane Lake, often this brilliant aqua colour

Approaching Slims River and starting to look for white dots on Sheep
Saw some white dots on Sheep Mountain so pulled over for some
Sheep Mountain with some white dots about half way up a bit right of
A bit better view of the dots - Dall Sheep

Almost at our favourite campground in Yukon.

It was a great night for hiking the lakeshore and enjoying a
campfire. The sweet smell of fall was in the air. Wonderful!
