Fish Lake Road (4 of 6)

Next to Whitehorse is Grey Mountain (Yukon, Canada) and from the top you get a great vantage point. This panorama was created with 12 images. The view is westward. It is easy to access the top by road however it does get a little rough. Once at the top it is a short hike along a clearly marked trail to the higher points along the ridge line.  Here are two panoramas each made of 12 images.

Just next to Whitehorse sits Grey Mountain. You can drive up to the top of one of the ridges as a large telecommunication tower sits on top. The access road can get fairly rough so take your time as you drive up. Once at top there is a clearly marked trail to the north to access the higher points along the ridge. These snaps are from varies points along the trail to the north a higher elevation.

Just outside Whitehorse to the north on Klondike highway #2, the highway crosses the Takhini river just where it enters the Yukon river. You can access both rivers through an access road just before the bridge on the south east side. Where the access road meets the river you’ll find paths to west along the Takhini river or west along the Takhini river to where it meets the Yukon river. A great area to explore. Here are a few snaps taken in the area.
