Good morning from a very chilly Yukon (minus 50 degrees C)
Driving to Whitehorse from Pelly Crossing these days can be a very lovely and lonely four-hour journey. With temperatures well below minus 40 degrees C., one sees more wildlife along the Klondike Hwy than vehicles. During a recent grocery run into town we spotted a herd of elk, a mink surfing through the snow, several grouse soaking up the rays of the sun and a lynx wandering across the highway. Not surprisingly, we only came across six vehicles throughout the 260km drive.
When we left Pelly, early that morning, the mercury had read minus 40 degrees. By the time we had arrived in Whitehorse the temperature had soared to minus 18!! Ahh, welcome to the tropics of the Canadian North!!
Hope this finds you warm wherever you are in the world.
