Chilkoot Trail - Climbing on ice and relaxing

The Chilkoot Summit from our lunch spot. Still a kilometre to the base with a daunting 40 metres of ice climbing on all fours to reach the top.

Andrew and Joy with the Chilkoot Pass. Warm sunshine and reflecting snow toasted us through the day.

Joy and I relaxing amongst the wild flowers we worked so hard to visit.

Filling water bottles at Happy Camp.

We meet Christine, the longest serving trail warden, on the trail and trade some stories.

Katie relaxes in the tent museum and library at Lindeman City.

Bare Loon Lake, our last night, scene of the Thomas family banquet and a serenade of loons.

Waiting for the train at Bennett.
Bennett Lake reflections.

Katie, Greg and Andrew, still smiling on the way to Carcross.
