Whitehorse and Yukon River in winter

3 January 2014 - Wednesday

There was sunshine out at midday.
Decided it was a good opportunity to play with a new camera in the cold!

The Yukon River is not completely frozen so there is ice fog to add intrigue.

Looking around I saw the top of Haeckel Hill in the sunshine. Thought it would make a good test for the superzoom on the camera. The hilltop is 10 km distance from the SS Klondike, as the crow flies.
