The Snowy Yukon From Above
Arriving or departing from the Whitehorse International Airport in the Yukon Territory usually provided an excellent opportunity to view the awesome landscape from a new vantage point. This particular shot was taken as we were leaving the Yukon for the last time, and it captures the region near the Wheaton River Valley where I spent most of my time up there. Our cabin was nestled behind the first mountain range in this view, and the larger road on the lower left is the Klondike Highway, which was our means of getting to the city of Whitehorse and beyond.
With the snow-covered mountains, white lakes, and vast boreal forest, I think this southern Yukon landscape from the air is pretty cool!
