We are still learning about distances in Canada. Our saga with the temp tags is continuing as our trailer purchased in May still did not get the final tags in Delaware. We are relying on the dealer to issue a new temp tag every two months. It can only be issued when the previous expired. He kindly offered to overnigth it to us which is normally max two business days within the USA. However to Canada it takes longer (amd costs more) but I learned that after it arrives to Edmonton by air it goes by trucks to Whitehorse. In four days. So we are waiting for it and used the time to do short hikes in the area.

First we went to Eagle Point where we have seen eagles! Spot on nameing of the trail!


Then we visited Ice Lake and walked around it.


We also spent some time in the public library. Kids enjoyed books and parents enjoyed free (and fast) wifi.


During one of our lunches a squirrel visited too!


Another recommendation from "√Člet a Yukonban" (a Hungarian blogger living in Yukon) was the Grey Mountain where they spent a day with another Hungarian travellers, the Overlandsite. There was a quite rough offroad section (about 5 kms) at the last section to the top but we managed it (without the trailer obviously). The view from the top was absolutely worth it.


We also stopped by Schwatka Lake where a dam was built on the Yukon River. There were small airplanes floating on the shore and we also seen the small bridge we walked on together earlier at the Miles Canyon.
