The Kluane National Park and Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the southwest corner of the Yukon, is dominated by glaciers and filled with valleys and lakes that are frozen year-round. It shares a vast land area with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, which contains the greatest number of peaks over 16,000 feet on the continent. By way of comparison, the latter is six times the size of Yellowstone. I passed these and other parks, stopping for photos and short hikes along the way en route to Haines, noted for its bald eagle population, hiking trails and beautiful bay. While there I camped out on a beach where I met three young men from Newcastle University in the UK. They had just returned from camping out on a glacier where they had collected samples and studied environmental activities on the glacier and its surrounding waters.
