Another sightseeing day here in Whitehorse, YT.  This morning we headed to the bank again to convert some US$ to C$ – they limit you to US 250 at a time, which does not buy a lot of fuel.  Then we went to the MacBride Museum of Yukon History – a steam locomotive from the White Pass and Yukon railroad, a Mounted Police substation, and Sam McGhee’s original cabin.  Robert Service wrote a poem about the cremation of Sam McGhee, although he had to get permission from Sam to use his name in the poem.DSC01402

Our next museum was the SS Klondike, a paddle wheel river boat that travelled on the Yukon River.


We met Sharon and Don at the river boat, so all four of us drove up to see salmon swim up the fish ladder.  No fish were swimming yet, but we did get pictures of fish.  See Marilyn, Don and Sharon looking at the fish.DSC01406

We all went back to the Klondike Rib and Salmon restaurant.  Don and Sharon shared ribs, while Marilyn and I shared halibut and chips.  Everyone said their dinners were excellent.
