Hiking in Tombstone Territorial Park
– YG, F. Mueller
If you want the literal northern experience, North Yukon is about as far as you can go.
The stark beauty of the region is protected within five wilderness parks and largely
encompasses the range of the Porcupine barren-ground caribou herd. In spring,
thousands of caribou and migratory birds return to have their young, and by fall the
land is ablaze with crimson, orange and gold. Home of the Gwich’in, Hän, Inuvialuit and
Northern Tutchone peoples, North Yukon also boasts the only Canadian highway that
crosses the Arctic Circle—the Dempster Highway.
