Photos of Whitehorse, Yukon

Whitehorse, Yukon Photo Album
The Whitehorse dam, built in 1957-58, changed the city in some rather significant ways. Most important, power rates went down, and the rapids which gave the city its name were buried under a lake which became a popular recreation resource as well a safer float plane base. The people to the left are looking down at salmon preparing to go up the fish ladder that was built to allow them to get to their spawning creeks upriver.
