Canada Day

How to celebrate Canada Day in the Yukon. Summer is wonderful in the Yukon. Days are endless, sunset are followed by sunrise and you can enjoy the midnight sun. We decided to gain a bit of elevation in the middle of Kluane national park for a couple of ski sessions. Thanks to Icefiel Discovery and Captain tom our pilote, we were dropped at the Icefiled Discovery  camp, just in front of the Mont Logan.

We took a couple of minutes celebrating Canada Day, and enjoying the scenery, Mont Logan 5959 m, the highest peak in Canada just in front of us.

Then it was time to dig a bit to have access to the camp to droop some gears.
