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)
This spectacular property is now being offered for sale.
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
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.
There are more Yukon webcams linked from
this page, and
dozens more webcams located in all of the circumpolar nations
