Miles Canyon and beyond

I left Whitehorse for Miles Canyon. A trail led to the Yukon River, still flowing at a frantic rate. From there, I lazily zigzagged towards Skagway, stopping at scenic spots on the way.

Taking the Alaskan Highway, I drove to Jake’s Corner and crossed over towards Tagish. Passing Tagish Lake, I had to remind myself to keep my eyes on the road. Luckily there were viewing-points, so along with other tourists, my mouth was agape at the splendour.

Next was to the desert not far from Carcross. Rolling sand dunes wove their way towards hills in the distance. The contrast between the places I’d seen was striking. What would Skagway be like?
