This was a very long day of cycling. Again a partly cloudy and sunny day with a headwind in some sections. The Kluane river was fast and majestic. The highlight of the day was the picturesque Pickhandle Lake. It was simply gorgeous.
There was also a lot of construction work going on in various sections, The roads were gravelled and there was a pilot car one section to take me across. I met some very local First nation indians who were part of the construction crew.
I stayed at the Kluane Lake rest area before Burwash Landings., a small town before Destruction Bay, which was to be my next stop. The Kluane river valley is called Asi Keyi – My Grandfathers Land by the First Nation people and for countless generations, the river has provided fish, birds and animals to the people. It is home to moose, caribou, bear, eagles and hawks.
