Upper Wheaton River Valley Panorama
The Wheaton River Valley is where I probably spent the most time during my graduate research trips to the Yukon Territory…and it is photos like this one that help me remember just how beautiful this area was. On a wondrous blue sky day, we enjoyed a great snowy hike up along a snowmobile trail that included this open overlook of the valley and surrounding snow-capped mountains. I think we had to stop for a bit here to take in the scenery before continuing onwards toward our snowpit locations.
