June 24, 2007 Whitehorse
Breland and the Big Red Blind handled that steep climb up the dirt road with ease, not even needing four-wheel drive. We drove on through the Yukon Territory, stopping often at pullovers to look at the incredible scenery. This is such a vast land with towering mountains and wide green rivers. The rapids and waterfalls along the way roar in the stillness.
Our destination was Whitehorse, capitol of the Yukon Territory and its largest city, holding 31,000 of the total 36,000 population of the Yukon. Luckily there are four tire shops in this small town. One of our tires has no tread left at all. Breland checks the inflation daily and all of the others look fine. At least we have the problem in a populated area. Our cell phones haven’t worked for days and we would have a bit of trouble calling AAA.
Last night we walked around Whitehorse a bit and went to the Frantic Follies. The show was fun and the dancing girls terrific. The highlight of the night was the dramatization of “The Cremation of Sam Magee”.
