Monday, June 7, 2010, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory
Ah, a day of relaxing a bit. With our felt window coverings and our sky light and ceiling exhaust fans covered we were able to stay in bed until a little after 7 this morning. After eating an egg, spam (yes,we are eating some Spam purchased in Minnesota) and pancake breakfast and walking Travis the four of us went into Whitehorse. Waiting for the trolley to return we did walk over to the S.S. Klondike, an old paddlewheeler that was used on the Yukon River, and took some pictures. We did not go inside for the tour. Finally the trolley returned so we paid $4.00 per person to ride the trolley round-trip along the riverfront area of Whitehorse
The food was good- we even indulged in some desserts- Bumbleberry Pie and Breadpudding- served warm and a la mode but the prices were a little high. This restaurant is in 2 oldest buildings in use in Whitehorse, the capitol of Yukon Territory. The specialities of the restaurant are Northern Foods- fish and wild game animals. We all had halibut in one form or the other. After lunch we walked back to the trolley and finished our ride. As we drove out of the town a coyote was seen in a field next to the road. We drove to the airport and transportation museum where a DC-3 passenger airplane is mounted on a pedestal so perfectly that it serves as a weathervane swinging around with the slightest breeze to point into the wind.
