Aug 9, 2016 - Another day at Takhini Hot Springs
We are spending another day at Takhini hot springs, it's nice to stay in one place for a second night to get a little time to relax. We went into Whitehorse again so Ken could get a much needed haircut. We also went to the Fish Ladder in Whitehorse to see the salmon heading back to their birthplace to spawn & die (happy thought, huh?). After spending half the day in Whitehorse, we headed back to the hot springs for some more R & R in the springs.Jump to full entry
Aug 8, 2016 - Whitehorse & Takhini Hot Springs
We departed Twin Lakes campground and are headed to Takhini Hot Springs which is near Whitehorse YT. We arrived at the hot springs around 1:30 pm, got the camper set up and headed into Whitehorse to take care of some business (shopping). We saw a nice little buck & doe along side the road on the way into Whitehorse. We only logged 155 miles today.Jump to full entry

Jul 14, 2012 - to Takhini Hot Springs from Whitehorse
Saturday - On this beautiful Saturday (sunny and 71F) it seemed like all of Whitehorse was outside. The city was buzzing with events. After hiking around for the day we drove north on the Alaska Hwy (Rte 1) and onto the Klondike Loop Hwy (Rte 2) to Takhini Hot Springs. The access road to the hot springs was under construction so it took longer than we expected to drive the 50 miles. Takhini Hot Springs is a little more developed than the hot springs at Liard River in B.C. but still quite rustic. There are two pools, one hotter than the...Jump to full entry
Jun 27, 2010 - Time to Move On Up The Road To Alaska
Up early at the Hot Springs and a check of the bands indicates that propagation is down. I work a few additional stations and it is obvious conditions have not improved and NA9Q/VY1 is not being heard very well. After some more frustration, our station closes down mid morning with 50 contacts total. After a light breakfast we do dishes, clean up the camper, take down antennas, and pack away the radio gear. Once eveything is ready the plan is to dump the tanks and fill the fresh water here at Takhini Hot Springs before heading up the highway...Jump to full entry
Jun 26, 2010 - It's Field Day 2010!
We awake to a chilly morning but it is clear and will warm up soon, we hope. Following breakfast we fire up the radio to try things out again just before Field Day start at 11 AM local. Results are discouraging, we only snag one or two stations even though we hear many loud signals. We break for an early lunch with cheese, smoked salmon and fruit. Good finger foods. The $12 piece of smoked salmon gave us a light lunch and an great no-cook evening meal. Back to the radio. Just before the 11 AM starting gun we hear indications the bands may...Jump to full entry
