Another Day in Whitehorse

We start out at 11:30 AM, rather late as Dick is trying to follow the British Open on his laptop computer.

Located by the scenic airport, are 2 attractions; the Transportation Museum and the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Center.  At the museum, we sit in an old railroad car and watch a film on the history of Yukon transportation and then stroll through rooms where we view many rare archival photos, as well as vintage airplanes, cars, tanks and trucks.  At the exit, there is a trail that leads to the Interpretive Center, where a 15 minute short provides us with modern scenes of the Yukon today, compared with days gone by.

This exposition features exhibits of animals of the last ice age and the guide takes us outside on the patio to teach us how to hunt with primitive throwing sticks.  Placed in strategic areas are wooden animals such as bison, horse and beaver.  My spear hits a rabbit!

The day is filled with clear, blue skies and an abundance of sunshine.  We stop at Wal-Mart to buy some needed items, pick up our tickets for tonight’s follies and head back to our campground.

Hutch video calls us on “Tango” and we are able to catch a glimpse of the wedding ceremonies of June and Alex Pujo’s son in Sonoma, CA!

The Frantic Follies Vaudeville Revue begins at 8:30 PM.  Two hours of singing, dancing and comedy skits bring this day to a close.   It is so strange to walk out the doors at 10:30 PM and see the town still bathed in light.   One thing I’ve noticed during this part of our trip, 9 out of 10 people I see are overweight, big and burly.  Could it be their sedentary lifestyle?
