South Klondike Highway Photo Album

Driving the South Klondike Highway in the winter can be magical. This is a rarely-seen icebow, caused by the sun reflecting off ice crystals in the air. A less dramatic version of this uses the term sundogs for the brightest points seen on each side of this arc. This view is southbound at about Mile 26.5 (Km 42.4) on January 2, 2004. The photo is purposely underexposed so that the arc can be more clearly seen.
