Whitehorse to Haines Junction
These are the mountains we are heading to. The front range hides a giant ice field of mountains behind and Canada's highest Mountain, Mt Logan.
There are ice fields and glaciers you can take flight tours to see as well.
We are heading to a small lake near one side of the park called Pine Lake.
We were in so early we hit the info center and got descriptions of hikes and saw a movie on the park.
After getting camp setup we talk to the ranger who says they have had a 2 year old bear around and we should be on the lookout. Will and I head to the public day use area of the lake and take a very very cold swim. We all turn in early as we plan to do a nice hike tomorrow.
