In September 1997 we headed north with our Class C motorhome, accompanied by two friends. I haven't scanned the images from this trip yet, but have scanned the shots I took from a helicopter tour near Haines Junction, Yukon.
During this trip we had a spare day in the Kluane Lake area after deciding to not hike the trail a grizzly bear had headed up near Sheep Mountin. On our return to Whitehorse, and on a whim, we stopped at the Haines Junction airport.
A TransNorth helicopter pilot was killing time between charters; he had dropped some folks off in the bush in the morning and was to go back late in the day to pick them up. We asked if he would take us for a flight, and he agreed to an hour long 'hop' for $600.
He flew us west of Haines Junction, along the Alsek River, which flows through Kluane National Park. These are some of the pictures from that flight.
In August 2000 we went on a two-week rafting trip on the Alsek River, from Haines Junction, Yukon through the tip of British Columbia, and ending at Dry Bay, Alaska.
The Tatshenshini River flows into the Alsek River.
