Beaver Creek, YT Canada - Haines, AK, USA - pouring rain
Shortly after we started the 580 km drive to Haines, AK we encountered 400km of solid aspen colors in many shades lining the highway. Our jaws kept dropping - we had never seen anything like it.
This was the first sign of fresh snow on the mountain tops - the highest elevation was at Boutilier Summit at 1,000 m.
As we crossed the border between Yukon and British Columbia I took this shot, very typical of the terrain we had most of the day, except for the last 75 km down to Haines, which is close to sea level.
