To Life on the Edge: Images of Carcross





    Greetings from Carcross! I'm Murray Lundberg, and this is the view to the NNE from my cabin, looking through the kitchen window over Lake Bennett, the village of Carcross, and Caribou Mountain. (Due to ongoing technical problems and the high cost of maintaining the webcam system, the image is now only updated occasionally - the date on the image will always show when it was taken)

    Do you enjoy blogs? I invite you to visit my ExploreNorth Blog - lots of information about the North, as well as photos.

    The webcam just shows a narrow slice of the view - to see a panorama covering about 140°, click here (now shows a May 2004 image). A winter shot with locations named can be seen here.

    To see how we used to celebrate the longest day (June 21) in Carcross, see this article. On December 21st, the shortest day of the year, the sun is only up from 10:08 until 3:50.

    To see lots more of the Carcross and Southern Lakes region of Canada's Yukon Territory, visit my Carcross pages at ExploreNorth.

    To explore the entire circumpolar North, from Alaska to Siberia, my huge ExploreNorth site has original articles, photos and over 8,000 annotated links to sites related to Northern arts, culture, economy, sciences and tourism.

    To see the current and forecast weather, click on the weather graphic to the right (Environment Canada) or here (The Weather Network). Be aware, however, that the weather shown is actually for Whitehorse (even though it says Carcross). The weather can be dramatically different than what is reported, enough to put people who believe the report in danger at times.
