We spent the day sightseeing in Whitehorse. We started with the Beringia Interpretive Center where we learned about the northern part of the Yukon that was ice free during the last glacial period and was inhabited by Mammoths, Scimitar Cats, giant sloth, giant beavers and humans. Next we went into town and had lunch then toured the S.S. Klondike, one the last steamships to ply the Yukon between Whitehorse and Dawson City. It was retired in the 1950′s. We finished the day relaxing at the Takhini Hot Springs, very nice. The name sounds pleasant until you learn that Takhini is derived from the local native words for mosquito river.
