North to Lake Kluane

5-8-2013:  Another delightfully sunny bright crisp morning.  Inside temp 44 this morning, but with sun (an a bit of heat first) quickly warms inside.  Left Whitehorse heading north toward Tok. Below picture – the Yukon River just before Whitehorse.

Today’s wild life – many swans a swimming, ducks paddling in thawed ponds and a herd of mtn sheep.  The many groups of sheep were easy to spot on a south facing snowless slope.Kluane Lake Area 007 Kluane Lake Area 014
