Episode 59: Ice Fishing and Mushing

On this week’s episode of My Yukon Life podcast radio, I take you to a remote camp reachable only by dog team or ski-doo in winter or by boat in summer. It was a stopover for the old mail run between Atlin, British Columbia and Carcross. The mail was delivered by dog team between those two locations, over frozen lakes and through a snowy mountain pass.

There’s lots of history in that area, and I’m going to share some of what I learned when I traveled there recently by ski-doo from my cabin in Tagish. If you’ve ever wanted to mush dogs or ice fish in absolute wilderness, you won’t want to miss this week’s episode.
