The local map we picked up at the info centre labelled a “Fire Tower and Lookout” at 4205′ elevation. As we fished our day away our friend Richard insisted he take us up later in the evening.
After dinner we headed out of our small resort. The day had been beautifully clear, but now clouds were rolling in. A few stray rays of sunlight lit up the docks as we crossed the 6 Mile River bridge.
The road looked like any gravel road as we headed up, but when we crested the summit and turned toward the fire tower, the ground fell away from us in every direction.
To the southwest was Tagish Lake where we had spent the full day touring and fishing.
When we looked east Little Atlin Lake was starting to glow as the sun made it’s lazy summer descent.
Marsh Lake faded away into the north and the 6 Mile River bridge we had crossed only a few minutes ago could be seen at it’s head, a small metal effort in the Yukon’s largeness.
