Yukon – Part 4
“It would have saddened me to see dust and rust where once hummed a rousing town; hundreds where there were thousands; tumbledown cabins, mouldering warehouses.” Robert William Service, poet and writer
If you’ve read my blogs in September, you can probably tell that I loved the Yukon. It left its mark on me through its vastness, a beauty that both awes and frightens. In this last blog about the Yukon, I leave you with pictures of Whitehorse, Dawson City, Tombstone, the Top of the World highway, Haines Junction and the Kluane. I can’t begin to sufficiently describe this place, but through these pictures I hope you will see why I fell hopelessly in love with it. And one day, I hope to return.
I disagree with Mr. Service. He never returned to Dawson City or the Yukon because he thought he would never be able to cope with how it had changed. And it will change again. But what will always remain is its intrinsic beauty and grandeur. This alone will draw me back.
Hope you enjoy these pictures.
