We arrived in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada today. Enroute here, Dad and I stopped at the Liard River hotsprings along the Alaska Highway to enjoy a swim. We had to walk back a long boardwalk over boggy tundra to reach these hotsprings. Once there, Dad enjoyed a long swim while I lounged just outside of the pool conversing with a nice Newfoundland. Dad tells me that these hotsprings remain very warm all year. In past years, Dad has swum here even with snow on the boardwalk!!
Upon arriving in Whitehorse, Dad and I stopped for the night at Wolf Creek campground just outside the city itself. From this campground, we hiked a trail that led back to a scenic cliff overlooking the Yukon River. Dad and I spent the night here before heading down the Klondike Highway to Skagway,Alaska the next day.
