Endless Adventures in Never-Ending Daylight

Daylight is all around you and this amazing view just won't quit. It's hard to believe it's evening as the sunlight and hillside invite you to play again, just one more time, before you call it a night. What a day: a grizzly bear in the distance, a moose so close, a creek crossing that cooled your feet, and good friends to share the adventure. And the best part? There's still tomorrow!

"O Dear Little Cabin"

It's a beautiful day in Dawson City: clear blue sky, sun sparkling through the trees. Your group hikes up the hillside where poet Robert Service was inspired to write his memorable verse. As you journey along the trail to the Crocus Bluff you are filled with a sense of awe, while listening to Service's words, "There's gold, and it's haunting and haunting; It's luring me on as of old; ... It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace."
