Storm Approaching at Miles Canyon
Miles Canyon is a cool spot just south of the capital city of Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory. It has pretty cool geologic features and is a very narrow stretch of the Yukon River that has proved quite treacherous and deadly, especially during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. On this particular day, we did not stick around the canyon for very long because we could see stormy weather on the horizon. We were able to escape the storm for a short amount of time, but it eventually caught up with us while we were driving and gave us a bit of Yukon hail.
