Our touring today was a wonderful reliving of the last vacation we had with the boys in 2003. There have been some changes - none good. Historic Carcross is now a commercially choked version of its former self and the Carcross Desert now has observation decks and washrooms. It was also pretty busy. When we were there with Gavin and Adam we were the only ones around. In some cases progress sucks.
As we approached the BC border the air was clouded with smoke and the smell was overpowering. We could plainly see the smoking areas. Thank goodness the river has blocked the wildfire progress into the Yukon. Paradise lost for many.
