Photos of Lake Bennett, BC & Yukon

An Explorer's Guide to Lake Bennett, BC & Yukon
On the west side of Lake Bennett between Mt. Gray and the Wheaton River is a lengthy stretch of sandy beach. As with the sand at the north end deposited by the Watson River, this is an extensive area of glacial silt deposited by the Wheaton River. Being somewhat sheltered from the prevailing winds, forests ot aspen and spruce primarily have largely stabilized the sand and small dunes here.
