Alaska Highway - Kluane Lake to Whitehorse

9 June 2013 - Sunday

The skies cleared overnight. Woke to a brilliant blue horizon!
Perfect for the morning dog walk along the shore of Kluane Lake.

The campground is surrounded by magnificent views, all sides!

The lake was calm today so Steve figured it was a good day to take his fishing boat for a spin. It was also a good day to begin Ursa's development as a boat dog.

The boat ramp at Kluane Lake is handy! After loading the boat, it was time to head out.  On the south side of the lake there is a large pullout, perfect for lunch and photos!

Heading towards Haines Junction, the Kluane Ranges to the west are always striking.

A quick overnight trip, and a good outing!
