Here in the Canadian Yukon Territory, we discovered a Heritage Center and it is located on beautiful Teslin Lake. The Yukon is beautiful! Let’s stop and explore the Teslin Tlingit Heritage Center.
It was cool and cloudy, so the walk to the entrance is rather dark.
But we loved these totem poles.
If you have visited southeast Alaska, you may have seen some items from the Tlingit Indians. There are many totem poles in Ketchikan, Alaska and other Alaskan towns. Entering the Heritage Center, we stopped to look in the gift shop. They have many beautifully made items, but we wanted to see the exhibits here.
These masks are fantastic. Remembering that -40 temperatures are common, we really liked the furs.
We would love those boots in our Colorado mountains. Of course, other items are also needed.
Things must be hand made. No nearby shopping mall. There were so many fascinating exhibits and we hope you visit here. But the setting of the Heritage Center is breath taking.
From the back of the center, you can access the lake and enjoy a picnic. Or just sit and admire the view. The view from the side is equally beautiful.
And the building has beautiful large windows for year around viewing. We love these canoes.
Aren’t they large and attractive? Too bad no canoe rides for us today. So many picnic tables and areas here.
This is perfect and so many people can enjoy the lake and the beautiful Yukon views. Ducks and humans are so in awe of the beauty of nature here in the Yukon. A few miles south of Teslin Tlingit Heritage Center is Nisutlin Trading Post and Motel.
Of course, we, like most drivers on the Alaska Highway, stop for gas at every gas station. You never know if the next one is open or if it has gas. This police car is great and the officer looks so real from the road. No speeding here. We loved our time outside today, but our favorite Canadian was enjoying a snack along the road.
We saw a bear about every day and we always pulled over to watch them eat and admire them. This drive is beautiful. And both relaxing and invigorating with the incredible Yukon scenery.
