Yukon Territory: Westward From Whitehorse


We stayed in Whitehorse for two days. I did not enjoy much about the town, the stores or the region, and wouldn’t stay there again. Having said that, I would definitely stop by to have Sunday brunch at the Burnt Toast Cafe. Wow, what a burst of originality and flavor! I had the salmon benny (benedict). Wheat muffin, smoked salmon, spinach, poached egg and smothered in a explosive hollandaise spiked with cayenne. Holy Smokes, was that ever good!

We travelled west from Whitehorse to Haines Junction, where the Alaska Highway turns northwestward and skirts the Kluane National Park and the St. Elias Mountains. Mt. Logan is further into the park than you can see in this picture, but it is the highest peak in Canada, rising 5,959 meters or 19,551 feet. On the North American continent, it is second only to Mount Denali.
