This beautiful canyon is reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, originally a portage point in the late 1800s, the latter White Pass and Yukon route are easily seen. The road ends at a hydro-electric power plant.

The canyon on a sunny day is well worth the drive from Whitehorse. It is an excellent walk and there is a suspension bridge for a bit more excitement. Watch your kids on the rim walk as it is very close to the edge and...More

Not sure what as you saw but we took a cruise with Captain Kens Adventures. We were more than happy with the experience. Captain Ken was very informative.
